Saumu's story

Saumu is married to a businessman with seven children, three are in school and four have graduated from school. They own a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. For the past 25 years, she has operated a food stall selling business at a nearby school, selling to children going to school. Saumu faces a major challenge of seasonality. There is a high demand during school days and it is low during the holiday season.

Saumu dreams of expanding her business to generate more income and educate her children. With the Kshs 10,000 she is requesting, she wants to pay school fees for her child. She decided to work with Yehu to access loans to improve her living standards.
