Angelica is a 26-year-old married woman from Mwambalazi, Kenya. She has a grocery business that she has been operating for the past 8 years. She lives in her own house with her husband and five children. She says that much of her monthly expense goes to school fees for her three children who are in school.
She has applied for her first loan from Yehu Microfinance to enable her to buy more onions, tomatoes and green peppers to add to her stock for sale. She says her business will do well after the loan and hopes to see her business expand. She operates her business selling to the people at the market.
Angelica hopes to own a retail shop in the near future. She is working very hard to ensure that her dream comes true, though she faces a challenge of high transport costs when transporting her goods to the market.
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.
