Mesaidi's story

Mesaidi is a widowed woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is rent. For over ten years, she has operated an open air food stall, cooking rice and beans for sale. She sells from home to her neighbours and passersby. Mesaidi faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the rainy winter season, it becomes difficult to sell food in an open market. She hopes to establish a restaurant in the future. With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase bags of beans and wheat flour to cook for sale. She decided to join Yehu because of its good customer relations.
