Binti is a 47-year-old married woman who lives in the urban area of Msambweni. She is the mother of seven.
For almost ten years now, she has been operating a kiosk, which is home-based. Binti sells a variety of home products and foodstuffs.
Like any other good merchant, Binti would wish to see her business grow. Her stock has gone down, and she wants to increase her inventory. However, she is faced with an inadequacy in working capital. This is why she visited Yehu offices to ask for a loan to buy basic grains, foodstuffs, and detergents, among other instant goods.
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.
