Salome is married and blessed with two children all of whom attend school. They live at a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her kids.
She has operated a khanga (women raping cloth) selling business. She cites seasonality and stiff competition from other operators to be her major challenge.
With the Kshs 50,000 she wants to purchase more khanga for resale to gain more profit. 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.
