Mariam, a married mother of three school-going children, one boy and two girls, owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

Mariam has operated a clothing business for the past four years, selling at the market and from home to neighbours and passersby. She decided to join Yehu to access loans easily, and with a loan of Kshs 25,000, she wants to purchase bundles of Khangas - Kenyan women's attire. She faces a major challenge of seasonality, and during rainy season transportation becomes a challenge. She dreams of expanding her business and supplying in large quantities in the future.
