Judith is a married woman with five children, four attend school while one graduated from school. She owns a house that has piped water but not electricity. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
She has operated a fresh water selling business for over one year and sells from home to her neighbours. Judith faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the hot summer season, the supply of water becomes low compared to the high demand at the market. She hopes to open a poultry business in the future.
With the Kshs 25,000, she wants to start a poultry business and purchase a brood of chicken. She decided to join Yehu to access loans and expand her business.
