Nyiro is a married man with eight school-going kids. He lives at his own house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the last four years, he has operated a goat meat selling business, selling at the market to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of competition from other retail shop operators in his business.
With the KES 30,000 loan, he wants to purchase more goats for his meat sales business to earn a living and support his children. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his 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.
