Hellen, age 37, is single and the mother of one kid, age 4. They both live in their own house that has electricity and piped water.
For over three years, Hellen has operated a kindergarten school. Children from the neighborhood attend the school. She faces the major challenge of stiff competition in her business.
With this loan of 50,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to deploy more teachers in the school to accommodate the increasing number of children. 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.
