Asha's story

Asha is a married woman with five children. Three of her children currently attend school and the other two have graduated. She lives at her own house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She has operated her beverage selling business for over five years. From home, Asha sells juice and ice cubes to her neighbors and school children. Her major challenge in the business is seasonality. During the rainy winter season (June-July) the demand for juice is low compared to during the hot dry season (January-February). She hopes to be self-reliant in the future and expand her business.

Asha decided to join Yehu to get a loan with the hope of improving her business. With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to repair her refrigerator (which she stands next to in the photo) as well as purchase a sack of sugar and packets of flavoring that she uses to make natural juices.
