Margaret's story

Margaret is a married woman with two children, both of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water.

She has operated a food vending business for the past three years, cooking chapati (flat bread), rice, and beans. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business.

With the loan of KES 50,000 that she is requesting, she wants to purchase stocks of sugar, rice, maize flour, and wheat flour for her food vending business. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
