A loan of $400 helped her to buy wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves, and cooking fat.


Mwaka's story

Mwaka is married and the mother of five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor plumbing, and her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables. For more than three years, she has operated an open-air food-selling business out of her home. She sells mostly to her neighbors and passersby, and her biggest challenge is the seasonality of her business. Mwaka has requested a loan to buy bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, tea leaves, and cooking fat. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.


This loan is special because:

It finances small entrepreneurs in the Kenyan coastal region.
