Edwina is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, rent and school fees. She has operated a retail shop for the past five years. Her customers are neighbours and passersby. She sells household goods like wheat flour, maize flour, sugar and salt. Edwina faces a major challenge of price fluctuation leading to low demand for her products. She dreams of owning a wholesale shop in the future.

With this loan of 40,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour and cereals for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
