Galiphah is a married woman who lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, school fees and clothing.
She has operated a cafe business for the past two years, selling to her neighbors and passersby. Galiphah faces a major challenge of seasonality and competition from other cafe operators. She hopes to expand her business and establish a restaurant in the future.
With the 40,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase bundles of cooking flour, baking flour, sacks of rice, cooking oil and sacks of beans. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her business.
