Fatuma is a hardworking and enterprising woman who lives in Tiribe. For over two years, she has operated a fruits and vegetables stall, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality.
Fatuma requested a loan from Yehu for 50,000 KES, which she will use to purchase stocks of green vegetables, fruits, tomatoes, potatoes, and onions. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business. She dreams of establishing a grocery store in the 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.
