Mlongo, 32, is married and has two children, both of whom attend school. She owns a house that has piped water but not electricity. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past two years, she has operated a green grocery business, selling green vegetables at retail to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a challenge of high cost of transportation and stiff competition in her business.

With the loan that she is requesting, she wants to purchase green vegetables, tomatoes and onions for resale. She decided to join Yehu because they are sensitive to customers' needs.
