She is a hardworking lady who also owns a kiosk. Her cousin assists her in running the kiosk. She and her husband live in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water.
Sheila has been an active member of Yehu for some time, this being her third loan. She tells us that the previous loans have been beneficial to her.
Sheila has received some orders, and she does not want to disappoint her customers. She is therefore asking for a loan of Ksh 50,000 to purchase rolls of cloth, with the remaining money to be used to add stocks of flour to her kiosk. Sheila’s goal is to own a dressmaking college in the future and to provide a quality life for her family.
