Tabu is a single woman with one child who lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school.
For the past two years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling in a shop to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation in her business. Tabu dreams of expanding her business to a wholesale shop in the future.
With the KSHS 70,000, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, sugar, maize flour and detergents. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
