Sikukuu is 32 years old and lives in the town of Kwale in the coastal region of Kenya. She is married and has four children. For the past three years, Sikukuu has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells dried beans, maize flour, sugar, detergents, etc.
To help expand her business, she has requested a loan of 20,000 Kenyan Shillings from Yehu. The loan will be used to buy more essential goods like sugar, dried beans, maize flour, etc., and will help Sikukuu to generate greater profits and pay for her children's school fees. She hopes that in the future she will be able to own a very big shop.
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.
