Rehema, 46, is married and has been blessed with five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
For the past five years, she has operated a vegetable stall business, selling to her neighbors and passersby. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her business. Rehema dreams of establishing a retail shop business in the near future.
With the 20,000 KES that she is requesting, she wants to purchase sacks of vegetables, coconuts and tomatoes for resale. She decided to join Yehu because of its favorable loan requirements.
About Yehu Microfinance Trust
