A loan of $450 helped to purchase sacks of charcoal for sale.


Edison's story

Edison is a married man with one child who is still too young for school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past two years, Edison has operated a charcoal selling business, selling at the market to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality. During the rainy season there is the high cost of transportation of charcoal to his place of sale because of poor roads. Edison dreams of selling charcoal wholesale in the future.

With the Kshs 40,000 Edison wants to purchase sacks of charcoal for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
