Chizi is a married woman and has five children. Three of her children go to school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.
For the past six years, she has operated a kiosk business, and her major challenge is seasonality.
With the 10,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase maize flour, cooking oil, wheat flour and rice. 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.
