Fatuma is a widow with five children, one of whom attends school. She lives at her own house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.

For the past ten years she has operated a fish-selling business, and she sells in a shop and from home to her neighbours and passersby. Fatuma faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of becoming a wholesaler of fish in the future.

With the Kshs 50,000 she is requesting, she wants to purchase two sacks of fish, bundles of maize, flour and sugar. She decided to work with Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
