A loan of $500 helped to purchase firewood for resale.


Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a married mother of six children, all of whom are grown. She lives in her own house, which has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for the family.

Beatrice operates a business selling firewood, selling from home to villages. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her business. She dreams of expanding to increase her monthly income.

With the loan, she wants to purchase a stock of firewood for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve her living standards.


This loan is special because:

It finances small entrepreneurs in the Kenyan coastal region.
