A loan of $500 helped to purchase bundles of wheat and maize flours, tea leaves, and cooking fat.


Mwanasha's story

Mwanasha is a married mother of three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables.

For over ten years, Mwanasha has been operating an open-air food sales business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces the major challenge of seasonality in her place of business.

With the 50,000 KES loan she wants to purchase bundles of wheat and maize flours, tea leaves, and cooking fat. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance to access loans to boost her business.


This loan is special because:

It finances small entrepreneurs in the Kenyan coastal region.
