Furaha, aged 35 years, is a married woman with six children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
Furaha has operated a retail shop business for the past five years, selling household consumables like wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar. She faces a major challenge of stiff competition from other retail operators.
With the loan of Kshs (KES) 40,000 she 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.
