Agness is single and has three children, all of whom attend school and are under her care. She rents a house that has electricity but no piped water.
For over three years, she has operated a clothes selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby and even at the market. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business and also competition from fellow sellers.
With the loan that she is requesting, Agness wants to purchase three bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
