Halima's story

Halima is married and has four children, three of whom attend school while her youngest child is not yet old enough to go. She owns a house that has piped-in water but not electricity and her greatest monthly expense is food for her family. For the past six months, she has made a living selling water to neighbors and passersby. Her biggest challenge is competition from other water vendors in the area, but she dreams of expanding her business in the future. She has applied for a loan for Kshs. 20,000 to buy bundles of wheat flour, cooking fat oil and sugar. She decided to join Yehu to gain access to loans that would help her boost her business.
