Beatrice lives in Samburu, Kenya and has a family business selling groceries such as beans, rice, sugar and peas. Her business started two years ago. She is gradually making progress attracting customers, mainly in the neighborhood. Now she is applying for her first Kiva loan though Yehu Microfinance, because she needs to grow and to do that she needs to find suppliers from whom she can buy in volume and on a cash basis, as they offer a better price. This is the reason for this Kiva loan, the second loan that she has taken from Yehu Microfinance Trust. She will use this loan to buy sacks of rice, beans, peas and sugar. Her investment will be successful because she will get discounts that will increase her profits right away, and also benefit her customers. Her goal for the future is to have her own place where she could operate a big grocery store.
