Salama is a married woman with five school-going children. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For over six years, she has operated a fish-selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. In addition, she sells food stuffs, which makes up her other source of income. She faces the challenge of price fluctuations in her business.
With the loan that she is requesting, Salama wants to purchase bundles of fish and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
