Mwanasiri is married. She does not have children, but she stays with her deceased sister's children. They live in their own house that has electricity, but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for the adopted children.

Mwanasiri has operated a khanga-selling business (women's wrap cloth), selling from home and door-to-door, to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of a lack of capital to expand her business.

With the loan she is requesting, Mwanasiri wants to purchase two bales of khangas for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
