Mwaka's story

Mwaka is a married woman. She has four children, three of whom attend school. Mwaka owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are for food and school fees. Mwaka operates a business selling firewood, selling from her home to her neighbours and to passersby. She faces stiff competition from other firewood-seller businesses. With the KES 30,000 loan, she wants to purchase bundles of firewood and charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans and boost her business.
