Mary is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For the past year, she has operated a food kiosk business; selling the household consumables of wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. She sells at the market to her local neighbours.
Mary faces a major challenge of high transportation costs in her place of operation.
With the Kshs 10,000, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, rice, sugar and tea leaves.
She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
