Ega is a widow and a mother of four children, all of whom have graduated from school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
For six years, she has operated a cereals selling business, selling from home to restaurant operators and neighbors. She dreams of buying land and doing farming in the future.
With the 40,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase more sacks of maize, rice and beans, and bundles of wheat flour. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
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.
