Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a married woman with seven children; four boys and three girls, four of whom are in school. For the past six years, she has been selling dagaa (a small dry fish) at the market to the local residents. She also does farming as her side job.

Fatuma aims to open a retail shop in future. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Food is her greatest monthly expense. She is determined to make sure that her dream is reached.

She joined Yehu to secure loans to boost her business. With the loan of KES 20,000, she plans to buy a stock of dry fish to sell, and also to cultivate her farm and purchase fertilizer.
