Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a married woman with five children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For over 10 years, she has operated an open-air food selling business from home, with neighbors being her potential customers. Fatuma faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the winter rainy season it becomes difficult for her to sell at an open-air market. She hopes to open a restaurant in the future.

She decided to join Yehu to get loans to boost her business. With the 20,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase wheat flour, sugar, cooking oil and paraffin.
