Chizi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase bread, milk, soft drinks, rice, beans, and cooking oil.
Chizi is a married woman, with six children, three of whom are in school and the rest are adults. She owns a house that has neither electricity, nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. For the past six years, she has operated a shop kiosk business, selling to her neighbors and passersby. She mentioned seasonality as her major challenge. Chizi dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future. With the KES 30,000 loan, she wants to purchase bread, milk, soft drinks, rice, beans, and cooking oil. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
