Maria, 50, is married with four children. Two of the children attend school and the other two have graduated from school. Maria lives at her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Maria operates a maize selling business, selling at the market and from home to her neighbours and passersby. She dreams of becoming a wholesale supplier of maize in the future.
With the loan of 20,000 Kenya shillings (KES), she wants to purchase sacks of maize flour for resale. 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.
