Mary's story

Mary is a fifty-year-old married woman with five children who are all grown up. Her husband, Lucas Kalama, is a male nurse who contributes to the provision of the family's basic needs. She has a house with neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for her family and transportation.

Mary has operated a firewood selling business for the past fifteen years. In addition, she also owns a small retail shop. Her potential clients are the neighbors. She faces a major challenge in the transporting of her goods. She dreams of expanding her business.

With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase bundles of firewood for resale. She decided to join Yehu because they give loans to small scale business operators.
