A loan of $500 helped to purchase sacks of beans, cooking fat, oil, wheat flour, and rice to sell in her food stall.


Mwanahamisi's story

Mwanahamisi is a married woman and has two children. She lives in a rental house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past four years, she has operated an open-air food stall business. Her potential customers are market dwellers and neighbors. She faces a major challenge of price fluctuations of products in the market.

With the KES 40,000 loan, Mwanahamisi wants to purchase sacks of beans, cooking fat, oil, wheat flour, and rice. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
