Mwanasha is married and has three children, all of whom attend school. She lives at her own house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past ten years, she has operated a green grocery shop, selling to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of high competition from other green grocery stores and she dreams of establishing a fruit parlor in the future.

With the loan that she is requesting, Mwanasha wants to purchase bundles of green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and onions. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her business.
