Mary has three children and lives in Samburu, Kenya. She generates her income by selling fresh vegetables, tomatoes, fruits and onions.

She started her business approximately two years. As a mother and head of household, her biggest challenge is to meet the needs of her children until she achieves her dream of seeing them become successful people; they are the impetus for her to ongoing work.

Her joy and dynamism helps her succeed in her business, but she needs to increase her business capital to achieve her goal of generating more income.

This is why Mary is requesting her first Kiva loan with Yehu Microfinance Trust which will buy merchandise like green vegetables, cabbages, tomatoes and potatoes for resale. She needs disposable income to stock up on more products and to offer her clients more products. This will result in the success of her investment and will be the advancement she needs to be able to achieve her dreams in the future.
