Kivelyo's story

Kivelyo J. M. is a single woman who has been operating her scrap metal business for one year. Her previous occupation was selling second hand clothes. Kivelyo sells at a shop to people within the town but she faces the challenge of thieves and seasonality. Kivelyo rents a house with electricity and piped water, citing rent as her greatest monthly expense. Kivelyo decided to join Yehu to get a loan with a low interest rate and to improve her living standard. With the Kshs 80,000 loan she is requesting, she would like to purchase more scrap metal and also to pay unskilled labor. In the future, Kivelyo would like to buy her own plot and to build a shop so as to minimize her rent expenses and to make more business profit.
