Mwanamisi's story

Mwanamisi is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For over ten years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. Mwanamisi faces a major challenge of competition from other retail shop operators. She hopes to expand her business in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, tea leaves, cooking oil, rice, peas and kerosene for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her livelihood.
