Kilo's story

Kilo is a married woman with five school-going children. Her husband is a fisherman who contributes to providing the family's basic needs. She lives in a rental house with neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for her family and school fees for her children.

Kilo has operated a retail shop for the past six years. In addition, she runs a vegetable grocery. Her potential clients are the local area residents. She faces a major challenge of transporting her goods from point of purchase to her shop. She dreams of opening a cereal shop in the future.

With the KSHS 40,000, she wants to purchase sugar, rice, maize flour and wheat flour for her shop. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance because of their fair policies.
