Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for her children. For the past 10 years, she has been selling clothes in a shop to her neighbours and passersby. Dorris faces a major challenge with the high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of opening another business in the future.
With this 80,000 Kenyan shilling loan, she wants to purchase bundles of clothes and shoes. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
