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


Tima's story

Tima is a married mother of five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

For over twenty years, Tima has operated an open-air business, selling food from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of market competition in her business.

With the loan, Tima 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.
