Mwajuma is a 52-year-old married woman blessed with five children, two of whom are still in school. She runs a cereals store which has been in operation for three years. The business brings in a monthly income of approximately KES 12,000 per month.

This is her second loan of 25,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) from Yehu after successfully repaying her previous loans. She'll use the loan to purchase more maize, beans and dried peas for resale. She'll use the profits gained to pay school fees for her children.

Her hope is that her business does well so that she can venture into a large-scale cereals selling business.
Mwajuma lives in a cement house with electricity but no piped water.
