Nigongo's story

Nigongo is a married woman with two children who both attend school. She owns a house that has no electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

She operates a kiosk business, selling household consumables of wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of stiff competition in her business. Her dream is to establish a wholesale shop business in the near future.

With the KES 30,000 loan, she wants to purchase a stock of wheat flour, maize flour, sugar, and rice. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
