Asha has been selling mobile-phone accessories for over three years. She is married with two children who attend school. With the 40,000 Kenyan Shillings loan, Asha wants to purchase phone batteries and handset covers, which she will then sell door-to-door to her customers. She also sells khangas and kikois (clothing) to her neighbors.
She owns her home, which has both electricity and water. She cites school fees as her greatest expense. She hopes to someday open a shop from which to operate.
About Yehu Microfinance Trust
This loan is administered by Yehu Microfinance Trust, which was founded in 1998 as a project of CHOICE Humanitarian Kenya. In July 2007, Yehu became a separate entity from CHOICE and was registered as a trust. Since then, Yehu has expanded to cover over half of Kenya’s 13 coastal districts.
