Billah's story

Billah is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water and her greatest monthly expense is food for the family. For the past two years, Billah has operated a retail shop, selling goods in the local community. Her husband also contributes to the family’s income. Billah’s major business challenge is seasonality.

Billah decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business. She is requesting a 40,000 KES loan to purchase sacks of sugar, wheat flour, and maize flour. In the future, Billah hopes to open another retail shop and improve her family’s standard of living.
