At age 27, Fatuma lives with her husband and is still childless. For four years, she has been selling coconuts from her home, selling to the neighborhood. Desirous to increase her sales and to strengthen her business, she requested and obtained a micro-loan from Yehu, with the objective of meeting consumer demand and increasing her supplemental revenue.
The additional profit will allow her to participate in catering for household expenses and to help her save money to advance her education. The loan will enable her to purchase more coconuts for sale.
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.
