Janet, 48, is a loving mother of six children, none of whom are in school. Her husband, Tinga, works as a casual laborer. She runs a kiosk in front of her home to supply people in her village with basic goods.
Janet is requesting a loan of 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES). With this loan, she will purchase additional supplies for her kiosk including flour, cooking fat, soap, and fast selling goods. She dreams of opening a wholesale outlet in the future. Other sources of income include earnings from her spouse.
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.
