Saumu's story

Saumu is a married woman with six children; four attend school, while two are still too young for school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for the family.

For the past seven years, she has operated a coconut-selling business, selling at the market to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major high cost of transportation and seasonality. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.

With this loan of 40,000 Kenya shillings (KES), she wants to purchase sacks of coconuts for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
