A loan helped to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale.

Floriana's story

Floriana is a married woman; she has three children, all of whom attend school. Floriana lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. Floriana has operated a charcoal-selling business, selling from home to her neighbours and passersby. She faces stiff competition from other firewood operators in her business. With the Kes 30,000, she wants to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
