A loan of $250 helped to purchase fish for resale.


Salama's story

Salama is a married woman with two children, one of whom attends school while the other one is too young for school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She has been operating a dry fish selling business for the past two years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Salama faces a major challenge in the high cost of transportation in her business. She hopes to expand and establish a retail shop in the future.

With the Kshs 20,000, she wants to purchase a bundle of fish to resell. She decided to join Yehu because of the availability of sustainable financial services.
