Hadija
Hadija is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past two years, she has operated a firewood and charcoal-selling business. She sells from home to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge in the business is the high cost of transportation.

With the loan she is requesting, she wants to purchase 20 bags of charcoal and firewood for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
