Fatuma's story

Fatuma operates a retail shop to earn a living. She has run her business for the past year and a half and works hard to meet her family's needs. Her husband is engaged in farming. They work together to maintain the family's expenses so that they can live in dignity.

Fatuma tells us that her business is doing very well and that she has managed to increase her monthly income by over 30 percent.

Fatuma is requesting her second loan in order to buy flour, sugar, rice, beans, and other items that she will make available to her customers. She gives thanks for the help that she is receiving from Kiva and Yehu, and she promises to fully invest it in her business so that it can expand.

Her dream is to own a wholesale business in future.
