Baina is a hard-working married woman. She operates a general store selling charcoal. She and her husband are the responsible parents of three children, and her store is the only source of income for the family.
At present, the stock of her business is almost depleted. For this reason, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner Yehu Microfinance, which she will use to purchase sacks of charcoal for the store. This investment will help her to continue her small business and to satisfy the demands of her clients.
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.
