Tunda's story

Tunda is a married woman with five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past six years, she has operated a beauty salon business, her potential customers being neighbors and passersby. In addition, she operates a business selling charcoal and coconut. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. Tunda dreams of expanding and becoming a wholesale supplier of charcoal in the future.

With the 60,000 Kshs loan, Tunda plans to purchase sacks of coconuts and charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
