Kahunda is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

She has operated a food selling business for the past three years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Kahunda faces a major challenge of seasonality, especially during rainy season when it becomes hard to sell at an open air market. She hopes to expand her business in the future.

With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase bundles of cooking flour and cooking oil. She decided to work with Yehu to access loans to improve her business.
