Mwanakombo, 26, describes herself as a cheerful and friendly person, but someone who does not like things that are unfair. She lives with her husband and children in Likoni in the province of Coast.

Mwanakombo sells charcoal. In addition, she operates a green grocery selling a variety of fruits and vegetables. The business has allowed her to help her husband cover expenses related to their children's education and to the various household needs. This is her fourth experience with Yehu. She plans to use the loan to buy sacks of charcoal to continue with her sales business.

Her goal is for her children to finish their education.
