A loan of $325 helped to purchase sacks of coconuts as a supply during festive season.


Asha's story

Asha is a divorced woman with five children, two boys and three girls, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past three years, she has operated a coconut selling business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation and seasonality in her business. Her product is found in the rural areas with poor road networks, hence making her business difficult to operate. She dreams of expanding her business to meet her customers’ needs in the future.

With the Kshs 30,000 she wants to purchase sacks of coconuts as a supply during festive season. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
