Siaba is 33 years old, and is married to Mwamadi, a fisherman. They have four children and live together in their own house, which is cemented and has electricity.
She is a woman who likes business. She opened a food stall eight years ago, and despite that she alone runs it, sometimes she counts on the support of her children and her husband. She starts her work very early, at five in the morning, and works up to late in the evening. The problem is when she runs out of ingredients and doesn't have the money necessary to stock up. For this reason, she turns to the loans.
This is her second loan with Yehu, and she feels happy about the opportunity that they gave her and for the trust in her work. For this, she promises to be punctual in her payments just as she was with the first loan, and as such she will be able to access other loans in the future.
With this loan of KES 40,000, she will stock up with merchandise for her stall. She will buy sacks of sugar, rice, beans, etc.
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.
