A villager from the Kwale district, Mumbo is married with three children. Two of them are still in school while one is still young for school. To make a living, Mumbo has been selling diesel and petrol to motorcycle operators and taxi operators for almost two years. Lack of enough capital has been his main challenge in making a living.
Mumbo has been with Yehu Microfinance Trust for three loan cycles and has completely paid back the previous loans. The past loans have enabled him to better support his family. Currently, he is able to earn around 1000 KES per day. He is going to use the loan he is requesting now to buy litres of diesels and petrol. He hopes to make more income so as to live better and keep his children in school until they finish.
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.
