Fatuma is married and has one child who attends school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
Fatuma operates an M-pesa (mobile money transfer) business. Her potential customers are neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation.
With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to add M-pesa float (electronic stored-value credits) for her business. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to expand 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.
