Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a married woman with six children, two boys and four girls, one of whom still attends school. The family owns a house that has no electricity nor piped water. Beatrice's greatest monthly expenses are food, clothing and school fees. Beatrice operates a firewood sales business, selling in a shop to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of competition from other firewood sellers in the area. Beatrice dreams of establishing a retail shop in the future. Beatrice plans to use this KES 25,000 loan to purchase a bundle of firewood for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her living standards.
