For the last 5 years, Rukia has been selling khangas (a traditional type of women's dress in central/east Africa) in a shop to the general public. She chose to join Yehu because it has a clear regulatory framework. Rukia aims to expand her business and reach more customers. Her major business challenge is credit defaulters.
