A loan of $250 helped to purchase charcoal and bundles of sarongs called Lesos (Kikois).

Sofia's story

Sofia is a married woman with four children, all of whom attend school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past 10 years, she has operated a charcoal selling business. She sells from door to door to her neighbors and passersby. In addition, she also sells Lesos (sarongs), which contributes to her other source of income. Sofia faces a major challenge of competition from other charcoal sellers in the market. She dreams of expanding her business and having a wholesale shop in the future.

With the Kshs 20,000 she is requesting, she wants to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal and bundles of Lesos (Kikois) to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
