Mariam's story

Mariam is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past six years, she has operated a food kiosk business, selling foodstuffs such as maize flour and cooking fat to her neighbours and passersby. She mentioned seasonality as her major challenge, and she dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

With the Kshs 50,000 she wants to purchase maize flour, rice, beans, sugar, and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
