Zena is a married woman with three children who all attend school. She has been operating her business of selling second hand clothes from door to door to her neighbors and passersby for five years. With the 30,000 KES she wants to purchase a bale of clothes and clothing materials.

She faces the challenges of seasonality, especially the months of May and June during the rainy season when only heavy clothing are on sale. Zena hopes to build her own house someday in her life.

She decided to join Yehu so as to get a loan to boost her business and improve her way of living.

Zena rents a house with electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.
