Josephine's story

Josephine is a married woman with six children, four of whom attend school. She owns a house that has piped water but not electricity. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past six years, she has operated a charcoal selling business, where she sells to her neighbors and passersby. She also sells scrap metal, which contributes to her other source of income. Josephine faces a major challenge of high cost of transporting charcoal in her business.

With the Kshs 24,000 she wants to purchase 100 sacks of charcoal for sale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
