Mwanamzungu's story

Mwanamzungu is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past ten years, she has operated a clothes selling business, selling Kikoi's and leso's (kinds of African print cloth) to her neighbours. In addition she also operates a hardware business, her other source of income. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation and seasonality in her business.

With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase bundles of Kikoi's, Khanga's and shoes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
