Mchekesi's story

Mchekesi, 56, is a widow and has nine children, three of whom attend school and are still under her care. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For over six months, she has operated a green grocery business, selling groceries to her neighbours and passers-by. She also sells dried fish as her other source of income. Mchekesi mentioned stiff competition as her major challenge in the business.

With the Kshs 20,000 loan she wants to purchase green vegetables, dried fish, tomatoes and potatoes. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
