For the past ten years, Halima has operated a business selling maandazi (dumplings) from door to door and from home to her neighbors. The main challenge she faces in her business is seasonality. She dreams of establishing real estate houses in the future. With her 20,000 KES loan, she wants to renovate her house and purchase blocks and cement. Halima decided to join Kiva partner, Yehu, to access loans to raise her living standards.
