Katysoka's story

Katysoka is married with seven children: three adults and the rest in school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past three years, she has operated a mat-weaving business, selling from home to her neighbours and passers-by. She faces seasonality as her major challenge in the business.

With the Kshs 40,000, she wants to purchase bundles of reefs and a tins of dye to paint her mats. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
