Constance is a married mother of four children, three of whom attend school and one is still too young. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables.
For over ten years, she has operated an open air food selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality and transportation to her place of business.
With the Kshs 50,000 she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves, and cooking fat. 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.
