Mlongo is a 52 year old widow. She lives with her children, who are grown, in her own house in the town of Kaloleni, in the province of Coast. She describes herself as happy, hard-working and responsible with her children.
Mlongo has a grocery store which she constantly needs to supply with products. This is her second loan with Yehu, which she will use to purchase wholesale groceries like sack of rice, sugar, salt, bales of flour, detergents and other things that will offer her customers greater variety. By doing this, she will be able to make good profits and improve her quality of life. Mlongo hopes to continue accessing loans so that she can continue to move forward and improve her quality of life.
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.
