For the past several years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling household consumables for resale. She faces a major challenge of seasonality and the high cost of transportation in her business.
With the Kshs 50,000, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, beans and paraffin for cooking. She joined Yehu because of the favorable loaning policies.
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.
