Dear Kiva Lender,
Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers
every week, but since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans we rely on donations from supporters like you to continue this important work.
For a limited time, your donation of $35 or more
will also be MATCHED, doubling your impact.
If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $25 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31!
Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.
Mwanamisi, age 48, has been a merchant for three years. She is engaged in a food stall business and sells a variety of foods to the neighborhood and the general public. She is a hard-working and dedicated person.
Mwanamisi and her husband have five children, two of whom are now grown. Thanks to all of her efforts, her three younger children are pursuing their studies. She says that she never had the opportunity to proceed with her own studies after completing primary level. Therefore, her greatest wish is to see all of her children pursue professional careers so that they can have a better future.
Mwanamisi is requesting a loan that will be used to purchase firewood, wheat, maize flour, and other items of basic necessity so that she can restock 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.
