Mwanamgeni is a married woman with 3 children, 2 of whom still attend school. They own a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past two years, she has been selling fish at the market to her neighbors and passersby. Mwanamgeni faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During the dry hot season, the available fish supply is inadequate. While during the cold winter season, the available fish is enough for supply. Mwanamgeni dreams of expanding and selling as a wholesaler in the future.

With the 30,000 KES she wants to purchase 5 sacks of fish for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access funds to boost her business.
