A loan of $500 helped to purchase green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and onions for her vegetable stall.

Mary's story

Mary is a married mother. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is her rental bills.

For over one year, she has operated a vegetable stall business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces the challenge of the high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of establishing a café in the future.

With the 40,000 KES, she wants to purchase green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and onions. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
