Mwanalima earns her living by selling khangas (garments made with traditional fabrics) to her neighbors and to passers-by. She has been engaged in this business for two years. Her primary challenge is competition from other khanga sellers in the area.

She is a single woman who lives with her extended family in a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

With the Kshs 20,000 loan, she wants to purchase 30 pieces of khangas to offer for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
