Kupha's story

Kupha is a married woman with seven children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees. For the past four years Kupha has operated a retail shop, selling to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. During holiday season is when she gets lots of customers purchasing kanga's. Kupha decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business. With a 40,000 KES loan she wants to purchase bundles of lesso's (kanga's) and cloth material to start another business of selling clothes. Kupha dreams of expanding and establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
