Mwanamkuu's story

Mwanamkuu is a married woman with two children; one attends school while one is still too young for school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family. For the past four years, she has operated a tailoring business, her potential customers are the neighbouring community members and parents with school going children. She faces a major challenge of seasonality. During holiday season the demand for uniforms decrease since students are on holidays while when they re-open the demand increases. With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase cloth and a sewing machine. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
