Chinyavu is 43 years old. She is married, and lives with her husband and her seven children in a rural village in Samburu. For 10 years Chinyavu has worked in her business selling charcoal.
Currently she has applied for a loan in the amount of 20,000 KES, which she will use to buy more sacks of charcoal. She hopes that by stocking her business she will increase her sales and her income, which she intends to use for improving 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.
