Mwanakombo, 35, is a divorced woman living with her five children in a community in the town of Msambweni, Kenya. For the last two years she’s been working selling food stuffs in a food stall.
Mwanakombo is asking for a loan of 25,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) to buy wheat flour, meat, rice, sugar and condiments to make the turnover. She hopes to increase sales with the purchase of more ingredients. She also trusts that her profits will increase so that she can support her children with their schooling and continue growing in her business.
She is grateful for the opportunity Kiva and Yehu are giving her.
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.
