Mejumaa's story

Mejumaa is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. Her husband is a driver who contributes to the provision of the family's basic needs. She owns a house with electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for her family and school fees for her children.

Mejumaa has operated a business selling mats for the past 12 years. In addition, she sells lesos (kanga). Her potential clients are the local area women. She faces a major challenge of rising prices of products due to inflation. She dreams of expanding her business.

With the KSHS 50,000, she wants to purchase sisal fibers for weaving her mats and some pairs of lesos for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access funds to improve her business.
