Fatuma is 64 years old, widowed, and has two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in her own house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for her children.

For the past four years, Fatuma has operated a farming business. She sells to her neighbors and passersby from home. Her major challenge is seasonality, especially during the dry, hot season.

With the KES 15,000 loan, she wants to purchase fertilizer and seedlings for planting. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
