Mwanamvua is married and the mother of three school-age children. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped-in water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her children. For the last 10 years, she has earned a living by selling fish to neighbors and people who live in her town. Her main challenges are the high cost of fish, especially when the deep sea is running cold and not many fish are caught. She is requesting a loan to buy bundles of fish to sell, along with cooking oil and firewood. She decided to join Yehu to access loans at a lower cost so that she can improve her business.
