A loan of $350 helped to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale.


Mlongo's story

Mlongo is a married woman with three children, one of whom attends school while the other two are still young for school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past year, she has operated a charcoal selling business, where she sells at the market to her neighbors and passersby. Mlongo faces a major challenge of seasonality. During the rainy season the availability of charcoal for sale is lower compared to the hot dry season where the availability of charcoal is higher.

With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
