Bintihamisi's story

Bintihamisi is a widowed woman with six children, three of whom still attend school and three of whom have graduated. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water and her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For over ten years, she has operated a food stall in an open air market, selling food to her neighbors and passersby. Bintihamisi’s major business challenge is competition from other food stall operators.

Bintihamisi decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her livelihood. She is requesting a loan of 20,000 KES to purchase wheat and maize flour, beans, rice, and sugar. In the future, Bintihamisi hopes to open a restaurant.
