Mwanamisi's story

Mwanamisi lives in Tiribe, Kenya with her two children. She dreams of a promising future where she is able to provide her little ones with the potential for success.

Her children are the motivation behind her work of selling fast food such as fried potatoes and French fries. Her business is open on weekends and holidays. It is located near her home; she sells food to passersby in her area as well as to neighbors, family members and friends. They are familiar with the products that Mwanamisi prepares and are loyal to her business.

Mwanamisi' goal is to achieve sustainable growth and thus improve her family's income. Her biggest challenge is building up enough working capital in order to grow her business. Mwanamisi is currently applying for a Kiva loan (her first loan through Yehu Microfinance Trust). She will use it to buy supplies such as sauces, breads, sausages and meat in larger volumes so that she can increase her offerings.
