Billah's story

Billah is a married woman with four children, who still attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water.

She has operated a retail shop business for the past ten years, selling household consumables like wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. She faces a major challenge of debtors staying long to pay their debts.

With the loan Billah is requesting, she wants to purchase stock of sugar, rice, maize flour and wheat flour. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
