Mwanasha's story

Mwanasha is a married woman with two school-going children. Her husband is a businessman who contributes to the provision of the family's basic needs. Mwanasha has a house with no electricity but has piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family. She has operated a grocery for the past two years. In addition, she also runs a leso (Khanga's) selling business. (Khangas are a traditional Kenyan woman's wrap, as pictured here.) Her potential customers are the neighbors. She faces the major challenge of the high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of establishing a retail shop in the future. With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase one box of tomatoes, twenty kilos of sugar and thirty pieces of lesos (Khanga's) for sale. She decided to join Yehu to improve her standard of living.
