Mejuma's story

Mejuma is a married woman with five children, four of whom attend school, while the last is still too young for school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

She has operated a tailoring business for the past ten years, selling from home to her neighbours and passers-by. In addition she operates a water-selling stall, which contributes another source of income. Mejuma hopes to open a wholesale shop in the future.

With the Kshs 80,000 of her loan, she wants to start a retail shop business, purchase rice, beans, and sugar, and open another water-selling stall. She decided to join Yehu because it is simple to join.
