Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a married woman with seven children, with three of her children in school and the rest finished. She lives at her own 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 wheat flour, maize flour, and cooking fat to her neighbors and passersby. She mentioned high cost of seasonality as her major challenge. Fatuma 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.
