Mwanabena's story

Mwanabena is a married woman with eight children, all of whom have graduated from school. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

She operates an open air food market from home, selling to her neighbours and to school children. Mwanabena faces a major challenge of seasonality. During rainy season, it becomes difficult to sell in an open place. She hopes to be self-reliant in the future.

With the 50,000 Kshs loan, she wants to purchase sacks of rice, bundles of wheat flour, maize flour and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to get loans to improve her business.
