Bahati is single, and has no children. She lives in her own house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.
For the past three years, she has operated a business selling fruits and vegetables. She sells to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is stiff competition from other sellers.
With the Ksh 40,000, she wants to purchase sacks of fruits and vegetables at wholesale and resell them to make a profit. She decided to join Yehu to access loans in order to boost her business and improve her standard of living.
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.
