Mwanaumi's story

Mwanaumi is a married woman; she has five children, all of whom attend school. Mwanaumi owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her kids.

Mwanaumi has operated a charcoal selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby; in addition, she sells potatoes. She faces stiff competition from other operators in her business. With the Kshs 50,000, she wants to purchase sacks of charcoal to sell.

She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
