Mwanakombo, 35, is a divorced woman living with her five children in a community in the town of Msambweni, Kenya. For the last two years she’s been working selling food stuffs in a food stall.

Mwanakombo is asking for a loan of 25,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) to buy wheat flour, meat, rice, sugar and condiments to make the turnover. She hopes to increase sales with the purchase of more ingredients. She also trusts that her profits will increase so that she can support her children with their schooling and continue growing in her business.

She is grateful for the opportunity Kiva and Yehu are giving her.
