Mwanatibu, 28, is a resident of Kisauni. She is happily married. She and her husband live with their two children, one of whom is already enrolled in school.
Mwanatibu has owned a food stall for five years. She is satisfied with the results attained so far and always seeks to improve her business.
She is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Yehu to purchase ingredients like flour, raw potatoes, oils, etc. She notes that this will allow her to serve a wider range of people and increase her revenues.
In the future, Mwanatibu plans to take more Kiva loans to expand her business and hopefully boost her earnings.
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.
