Christine's story

Christine is a single mother with one son who attends school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and rent.

For over 10 years, she has operated a charcoal-selling business. She sells at wholesale to her neighbors and food vendors. Christine faces the major challenges of theft and seasonality in her business. She hopes to build her own home and purchase a pick-up van to use to transport her goods.

With the Kshs 40,000, she wants to purchase 50 sacks of charcoal and pay for a business permit. She decided to join Yehu to get loans to improve her business and her living standards.
