A loan of $225 helped to purchase sacks of baobab fruit to sell.


Halima's story

Halima is a single woman with two children who both graduated from school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past three years, she has operated a business selling baobab fruit, the powdered pith of the baobab nut. Halima sells at the market to neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality. During the dry summer season, the supply of baobab fruit declines, compared to cold winter seasons. She dreams of establishing a baobab fruit shop in the future.

With the KES 20,000 loan, Halima wants to purchase sacks of baobab fruit to sell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
