Fatuma is a married woman. Her husband works as a businessman. Fatuma operates a charcoal selling business and sells her goods from home. She has worked in this business for two years. Her primary customers are neighbours and passersby.

Fatuma's other source of income involves operating a green-grocery business. She describes her greatest business challenge as being the high cost of transportation and her highest monthly expenses are food and rent bills. She rents a house that has electricity but no piped water.

Fatuma will use the Kes 40,000 loan to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal. She aspires to become self reliant in the future. Fatuma joined Yehu to access capital.
