A loan of $1,050 helped dry fish and second hand clothes.


Florence's story

Florence is a married woman with a boy, 10, and a girl, 4, who both attend school. She rents her home and cites school fees, electricity, water, and rent as her greatest expenses. Her husband is a driver and she is a matatu (taxi van) operator. She also owns two matatus of her own.

Florence would like to open another business selling dry fish and mitumba (second-hand clothes) with her 80,000 KES loan. She hopes to provide her children with a good education and with assets. She decided to join Yehu because she believes that it is a good microfinance institution that can help women who are low-income earners.
