Benta's story

Benta is married and has five children, two of whom attend school while three graduated from school and are working. They own a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for the family.

For the past one year, she has operated a dried fish selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. In addition, she also does farming, which earns her another source of livelihood.

She faces a major challenge in the high cost of transportation in her business. She dreams of becoming a major supplier of dried fish in the near future.

With the KES 40,000, she wants to purchase two sacks of dried fish for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
