A loan of $500 helped to purchase bales of clothes for resale.

Asha's story

Asha is married with one school-going kid. They live in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She has operated a clothes-selling business, selling from home and door-to-door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of lack of capital to expand her business.

Asha is requesting a KES 40,000 loan, which she wants in order to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
