Mwari's story

Mwari is a single woman with four children, two boys and two girls, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees, clothing and food for the family.

For the past five years, she has operated a tailoring business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Mwari faces a major challenge of competition from other tailors in her area. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000 loan, she wants to purchase a sewing machine and cloth. Mwari decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
