A loan helped to purchase stock of motorcycle spare parts.


Amina's story

Amina is married. She has two kids, one of whom attends school. She rents a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past year, she has operated a motorcycle spare parts business from home. Her potential customers are motorcycle operators. Her major challenges are seasonality and competition in her business.

With the Ksh 20,000 she wants to purchase stock of motorcycle spare parts. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
