Mary is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She owns a house that has piped water but not electricity.

Mary has operated a water vending business, selling from home to her neighbors and passers-by. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. Her dream is to have a large amount of water storage in the near future.

With the 50,000 KES loan, she wants to purchase a water tank for storing water for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans in order to boost her business.
