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


Amina's story

Amina is a married mother of three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and household consumables.

For over five years, she has operated an open-air food-selling business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of business. In addition, she also operates a business of a rental house that earns her another source of income.

With the loan proceeds, Amina wants to purchase 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.
