Bibi's story

Bibi is married with seven children; only one is in school, the rest are adults. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

Bibi has operated a retail shop business for the past five years, selling household consumables like wheat flour and maize flour from home to her neighbours. She faces a challenge of delayed payments by creditors in her business. She dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, and cooking oil to sell.

She joined Yehu for financial support.
