Luvuno is married and has six school-going children. She owns a house with neither electricity nor piped water. For the past nine years she has been selling dried fish and paraffin in a shop; her customers are people from her village.
With the loan of KSH 40,000, Luvuno wants to purchase products for her shop kiosk to enable her to expand her business and educate her children. She decided to join Yehu so that she can access loans and be self-employed.
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.
