Gladys is a married woman with seven children, all of whom attend school. She rents a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and house rent.

For over 12 years, she has operated a fish selling business from home. Her potential customers are neighbours and passersby. Gladys faces a major challenge of seasonality because during the summer hot season fish is inadequate in supply at the market. She hopes to construct her own house in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000, she wants to purchase sugar, soap and washing detergent to start a retail shop. She decided to join Yehu because it has a good reputation in the community.
