Jonina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase sacks of fruits and coconuts for resale.

Jonina's story

Jonina is married and has six children. She owns a house that has no electricity but has piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees for the family. For the past ten years, Jonina has operated a fruit- and coconut-selling business. She sells to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is the high cost of transportation to her place of operation. With the loan of 30,000 Kenyan shillings (KES), Jonina wants to purchase sacks of fruits and coconuts for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
