Debora's story

Deborah is a widow with three children, two of whom are old enough to attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped-in water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family. For the past 11 years, she has earned a living by selling food to her neighbors and passersby. Her main challenge is the seasonal nature of her business. She is applying for a loan for Kshs 100,000 to open a handcart business by buying 10 handcarts and bundles of sugar, maize flour and cooking fat. She joined Yehu as a way to expand her business.
