Riziki's story

Riziki is a married woman with one child who is still too young for school. Her husband is a businessman who contributes to the provisions of the families basic needs. She owns a house with electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family. Riziki has operated a lesos selling business for the past three years. (Lesos are also called kanga. They are the most prominent article of clothing for East African women.) In addition she also runs a coconut and juice selling business. Her potential clients are her neighbors and the local area residents. She faces a major challenge of seasonality as she sells more lesos during the festive seasons. She dreams of establishing a wholesale shop of selling lesos. With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase more stocks of lesos and coconuts for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance because it has fair legal requirements.
