Mwanakombo's story

Mwanakombo is married with four school-attending children. She is married to a farmer and they are working very hard to ensure that they meet their family's needs. She does farming as her side job where she earns another source of income. She resides in her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water, and she spends much of her monthly income on school fees for her four children.

She got starting capital from her sister. Then she was introduced to Yehu by her neighbor and she was content with their terms of joining, so she is requesting a loan of Ksh 40,000 to purchase onions, tomatoes, and fruits to stock her grocery store.

Mwanakombo dreams of opening a shop in the future, even as she expands her grocery that is located opposite her house. The grocery has been operating for the past ten years, and it is a very hardworking lady who makes sure that her customers' needs are always met.
