Kenya
Kisauni, Kenya / Dairy

A loan of $500 helped to purchase a dairy cow and pay school fees for her children.


Nyevu's story

Nyevu is a single woman with seven children, four of whom still attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for her children.

She has operated a coconut-selling business for the past nine years, selling them retail at the market to her neighbours and passersby. Nyevu faces a major challenge of theft and high cost of transportation in her business. She hopes to become a dairy farmer in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase a dairy cow and pay school fees for her children. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to uplift her living standards.
