Fatuma is married and has one child. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

She has operated a fish-selling business at the market for the past two years, selling to her town dwellers and neighbors, but she faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing fish, especially during cold currents in the deep sea.

Fatuma is requesting a loan to purchase bundles of fish, cooking oil and firewood. She decided to join Yehu to access loans at lower cost to improve her business.
