Guya's story

Guya is a married woman with three children, all of whom still attend school and are still under her care. They live in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for the children.

She has been operating a charcoal-selling business. She sells at the market to her town dwellers and her neighbors. She cites her major challenge to be seasonality.

With the loan she is requesting, she wants to purchase 28 sacks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
