Christine is married and has ten children — nine in school and one still underage. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor running water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.
For the past five years, she has operated a business selling poultry. She sells to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation to her place of operation.
With a loan of 25,000 KES, she wants to purchase chicks and chicken feed. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
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.
