Nyevu's story

Nyevu is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has piped water nor electricity. Her monthly expense is school fees. Nyevu has operated a coconut business, selling at the market to her local customers for the past four years. She dreams of expanding her business in the future. She mentioned competition and seasonality as a major challenge in her business. With the KES 15,000 she wants to purchase sacks of coconuts for resale and pay school fees for her children. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
