Rose is a married woman with two children; one attends school while one is still too young. She lives at a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is rent.
For the past year, she has operated a grocery-selling business, selling in a shop to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation from the market to her place of operation. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the 10,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase sacks of vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and onions. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
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.
