Maimuna is married and has three children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees for the family.
For the past three years she has operated a green grocery selling business. She sells to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenge is seasonality of products that reduces her sales.
With the 50,000 KES, she wants to purchase sacks of green vegetables, tomatoes and onions for resale. 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.
