Jumwa is a widow. She lives in her own house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
She operates a charcoal selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces stiff competition from other charcoal operators in her area.
With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal for resale. 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.
