Mwatime's story

Mwatime, 37, is married with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are medical bills and school fees.

For the past three years, she has operated a food stall, selling at the market to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of competition from other food stall operators. She dreams of establishing a restaurant business in the future.

With the requested loan of KES 20,000, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, and cooking fat/oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
