Mariamu's story

Mariamu is a single woman with one child who graduated from school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, clothing and electricity bills.

For the past seven years, she has operated a business selling palm wine, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. In addition, she sells charcoal, which contributes to her other source of income. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation in her business. Mariamu dreams of furnishing her house in the future.

With the KSHS 40,000, she wants to purchase ten sacks of charcoal and pay for transport. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
