Mwari is married and has five children, four of whom attend school and one is still young. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her children.
For the past two years, she has operated a ground-nut selling business, selling at the market to her neighbours and town dwellers. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business.
She is requesting for a loan to purchase four sacks of ground-nuts for sale. 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.
