A loan of $125 helped to buy bundles of maize flour, sugar and beans to sell to her customers.


Mariam's story

Mariam is married and has five children, four of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped-in water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family. For the past three years, she has made a living by selling food to neighbors and passersby. Her biggest challenge is competition from other retail operators, but she dreams of expanding her business into a wholesale operation in the future. To make this possible, she is applying for a loan for Kshs 10,000 to buy bundles of maize flour, sugar and beans to sell to her customers. She decided to join Yehu to access loans that will allow her to boost her business.
