Josephine's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase one bale of clothes for resale.
Josephine is a married woman with four children, all of whom still attend school and are still under her care. They live in a rented house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. Josephine operates a clothes-selling business; she sells in the market to people who live in her town and her neighbours. She cites her major challenge to be the rate of stock turnover which is affected by seasons. With the loan she is requesting she wants to purchase one bale of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
