Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a married woman with two children, one of whom attends school while the other one is still young for school. She rents a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is high transportation costs.

Fatuma has been selling Khangas (garments) for the last three years. She sells door-to-door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces the major challenge of high transportation costs. She travels from Kenya to Tanzania to purchase Khangas of good quality, hence the high transportation costs incurred. She hopes to open a shop to sell Khangas in the future.

Her major reason for working with Yehu is because of its accessibility to sustainable financial services. With the Kshs 50,000 loan, she wants to purchase a bundle of Khanga's and clothes for women and children for resale.
