Mwaka's story

Mwaka is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has no electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

Mwaka has operated a business selling firewood for the past two years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Mwaka faces a major challenge of high transportation costs in her business. She hopes to establish a retail shop in the future.

Mwaka is planning to use this KES 30,000 loan to purchase bundles of firewood for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to expand her business.
