Juma, age 58, lives in the town of Msambweni. He lives with his wife and their four children. Four years ago, he decided to establish his own business, a grocery store, in order to generate greater income for the household.
He and his wife run the grocery store, and they wait on their customers all day. In order to keep his business stocked, he has decided to request a loan for 50,000 KES. He will buy beans, rice, flour, sugar, salt, bread, detergents, soft drinks and dairy products.
He has managed four loans from Yehu, counting this one. They have helped him increase his inventory and his clientele. His goal is to make his business grow more and to have it generate good income so that he can support his children’s education.
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.
