Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a 42-year-old widowed woman with eight children, four of whom are enrolled in school. She owns a house with neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.

Fatuma has operated a fish selling business for the past fifteen years; her potential clients are the local area villagers. She faces a major challenge of seasonality, where there are no fish in the sea sometimes. She dreams of being a seafood supplier in the future.

With the KES 20,000 she wants to purchase 20 kilos of fish, 1 kilo of garlic, 2 bundles of firewood, and 15 liters of cooking oil for her business. She decided to join Yehu to access funds to uplift her living standards and expand her business.
