Dzine is an industrious woman who owns and manages a kiosk selling different consumer goods to support her family. She has been in this business for almost four years. Behind her house, Dzine plants and takes care of a few kinds of vegetable crops and sells the farm produce from her home. She is now 33 years old and a mother to four children, who currently live with her since they are all in primary school.
To improve her business, Dzine decided to take out a loan from Yehu and Kiva to purchase bales of flour and sugar. Also, with the balance of funds, she intends to buy a plot of land to construct a house. Through the loan use, Dzine has a strong commitment to work out her plan and upgrade her living standard. She hopes to experience a better quality of life someday.
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.
