Mwachidofu is married and the father of seven children, five of whom still attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past three years, he has operated a goat-meat selling business, selling from home to his neighbors and town dwellers. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation in his place of operation.
He is requesting a loan of 30,000 KES (Kenyan shillings) to purchase five goats for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his 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.
