Mwanasha is a widow with 3 children, one of whom still attends school. She owns a house that has no electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for her child.

For the past 20 years, Mwanasha has operated a business selling doughnuts at the market to her neighbors and passersby. Her major business challenge is seasonality. Mwanasha dreams of expanding and establishing another business in the future.

Mwanasha plans to use this KES 30,000 loan to start another business by purchasing bales of mitumba (secondhand clothes) for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
