Mwanalima is a hardworking and enterprising woman who lives in the coastal region of Kenya.
For the past two years, she has operated a business of selling lesos (women's wrap cloth). She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. She dreams of expanding to become a big supplier of clothes in the future.
With the loan, she wants to purchase more pieces of lesos for resale. Mwanalima decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
