A loan of $750 helped to purchase a bundle of fish for resale.


Pelesia's story

Pelesia is a widowed woman who owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food. For the past twenty years, she has been selling fresh fish from home and door to door. In addition she also operates a retail shop selling sugar, wheat flour, maize flour, and cooking oil to her neighbours and passersby. Pelesia faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the summer hot season, the cost of fresh-water fish rises compared to in the rainy winter season where the buying price is lower. She hopes to open a shop to sell fish in the future. With the Kshs 60,000 she wants to purchase a bundle of fish for resale. She decided to join Yehu to get financial assistance to improve her business.
