Furaha, who is 42 years old, is a married woman with nine children and lives in the outskirts of Mombasa.
She decided to start her own source of income seven years ago. She sells fish at the market. She asked Yehu for a previous loan to keep her business stocked. This business is her source of income to cover household expenses.
She’s currently asking for her second loan of KES 30,000 to buy more fish. Her goal is to continue growing to obtain better profits. And, with help from her husband, she wants to build her own house, since the family is currently residing in a rental house.
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.
