Matogo lives in Msambweni, Kenya, with her husband and nine children. She owns a food stall located at the market. Matogo has been associated with Yehu Microfinance Trust for over two years and during that time she has seen her business grow thanks to loans from this organization.
Matogo is requesting a loan to pay the school fees for one of her children. She highly values education for her children and is looking for ways to provide for her youngest children, who are still under her charge. This is what motivates Matogo to operate her business as she wants to provide better education for her children. She is grateful to Yehu for the help it has given her. On a personal level, her business has provided her with independence and now provides her family with basic needs.
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.
