Amina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase bales of khangas (traditional women's wrap cloths) for resale.

Amina's story

Amina is a married who has no children. She lives at her own house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food. She has operated a khanga (women's wrap cloth) selling business, selling from home and door to door to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of lack of transportation and seasonality in her business. With the loan she is requesting, she wants to purchase bales of khangas for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
