Zainabu's story

Zainabu Z. is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. They live in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past 10 years, she has operated a crisp-making business. (Crisps are like chips and can be made of potatoes, cassava, etc.) She sells crisps from home and door to door to her neighbors and passersby. In addition Zainabu also operates a restaurant business which contributes another source of income.

She faces a major challenge of competition from other chip business operators in the area. She dreams of expanding her business and establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business. With the KES 20,000 she wants to purchase sacks of cassavas and mangoes.
