A loan of $500 helped to purchase two sacks of charcoal and a bundle of firewood.


Mejumaa's story

Mejumaa is married with six children: two have finished school and four are still going to school. She has been operating her firewood and charcoal business for three years and sells from her home to her neighbors.

With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to buy a bundle of firewood and two sacks of charcoal. Mejumaa's other source of income is her husband's earnings.

The major challenges in her business are the high cost of transportation and theft. In the future, she hopes to run a wholesale shop and to increase her profits.

She decided to join Yehu to get a loan to boost her business. Mejumaa owns a home with electricity but no piped water. Her major challenge is food.
