Beatrice is married and has five children. She provides grinding of maize. In her shop she also sells maize for grinding to her customers. Her shop is located where her home is. It is in Kisauni, Mombasa, where a lot of people know her. She lives with her husband, who is a businessman. She dreams of seeing her children prosper and develop their own success.

Beatrice often feels that she does not have the money to opportunely respond to all of her customers’ needs. This is her first loan with Yehu Microfinance. She will use the loan to buy spare parts to service her machine and fuel for running it.

With this investment she will have a little bit of everything in her business. This will be an effective solution for her customers. Her biggest dream and challenge is to have two more Posho Mills machines in a good location. That is where she will totally diversify her services, and she will make her business increasingly well known.
