Mohamed, 27, is an enterprising man who sells fuel in his home. He is well known in the area. He has a lot of regular customers, especially motorcyclists.
Mohamed is single and lives with his parents in the market center of Mwambalazi. He started with this line of work four years ago and this has helped him to make a living.
He is now requesting a loan from Yehu, so that he can buy a larger quantity of fuel (petroleum). He will then be able to sell more. There are also times when some of his clients want to buy extra stock to set aside for times of scarcity, so he has to make the most out of this situation.
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.
