Petronilla is a married woman and has no children. She owns a house, which has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.
For the past two years, she has operated a clothes-selling business, selling second-hand clothes for both men and women. She cites stiff competition as her major challenge in the business.
Petronilla is requesting to borrow KES 25,000. She will use it to purchase bales of clothes for resale. She dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop, in the near future.
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.
