A loan of $250 helped to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal for resale.


Halima's story

Halima is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her children.

She has operated a charcoal-selling business for over two years, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. Halima faces the major challenge of competition from other charcoal operators. She hopes to open a retail shop in the future.

Lucy decided to join Yehu to get financial support to boost her business. With the Kshs 20,000 she wants to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal for resale.
