Emmah's story

Emmah is married and has three children attending school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and rent.

For the past two years, Emmah has operated a cereal sales business, selling from door to door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of expanding and establishing more cereals shops in the future.

With the requested Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase sacks of rice, green grams, onions and sweet potatoes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
