She has been operating a charcoal-selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces stiff competition from other charcoal sellers in her area. With the KES 20,000 loan, she wants to purchase sacks of charcoal to resell. 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.
