Mwanatumu, 32, lives in her own house with her husband and four young children. She sells charcoal from her home. She is a very enterprising woman who works hard to help cover household expenses and earn a little money to cover some needs. She has struggled to keep her business afloat because competition is always there. She has been in business for six years, so she has many regular customers. Her customers prefer dealing with her because she’s a very charismatic, honest working woman.
She has decided to ask Yehu for a loan because she wants to buy sacks of charcoal to keep her business well-stocked. She states that she is very grateful to this institution because it provided her with help in the past when she most needed it. She hopes to have favorable results this time too.
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.
