Florence is a shopkeeper whose business is located in her home. She has a well-stocked grocery store and makes a lot of sales because she lives in a very busy area. She has an established customer base made up of passengers, wage earners, etc. Her husband works in the tourism sector and has a small establishment in a neighboring area.
Florence tells us that her goal is to maintain and strengthen her work place. This is why she has come to Yehu Microfinance and she is grateful to them for having given her the opportunity to obtain this loan for stocking her business with foodstuffs, drinks, rice, sugar and other products that she sells every day. She is grateful to Yehu Microfinance and Kiva for the opportunity that she is receiving.
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.
