Zawadi's story

Zawadi is 28 years and married to Salim. They are blessed with three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past three years, she has operated a food stall selling business, selling at the market and from home to her neighbors and passersby. In addition, she also sells fish which adds another source of income. She faces the major challenges of seasonality and the high cost of transportation.

With the Kshs 15,000 she wants to purchase bundles of fish, wheat flour and cooking fat oil for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
