Asha's story

Asha is a married woman with three children all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are electricity bills and school fees for her children.

For over fifteen years she has operated her retail shop selling sugar, tea leaves, and maize flour. Asha's potential customers are her neighbours and passersby. She faces the major challenge of competition as many retail shops sell similar products. She hopes to buy a plot of land in the future to construct rental houses.

Her major reason for working with Yehu is its good reputation. With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase ten bags of charcoal, five bags of beans and maize for her shop.
