Mwanasha faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of becoming the best supplier of vegetables in the market. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.

Mwanasha is requesting a loan for 20,000 KES, which she will use to purchase sacks of vegetables, cabbages, onions, potatoes, and tomatoes. She joined Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
