Selina is a married woman with four children (three boys and one girl). She lives at a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food, school fees and rent bills.
For the past four years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. In addition she also does farming as her other source of income. She faces a major challenge of delayed payments by those who purchase goods on credit.
With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase bundles of maize flour, sugar, beans, cooking fat oil, sweets and biscuits. 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.
