Atieno is a single mother of two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and transport.
For the past five years, she has operated a clothes selling business, selling from door to door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding and establishing a boutique business in the future.
With the loan that she is requesting of KES 50,000 she wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
