A loan of $250 helped to buy sacks of cashew nuts for resale.

Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a merchant. She sells cashew nuts at one of the busy markets. She’s asking Yehu for a loan to invest in her cashew nut business in view of expanding it. She has requested a loan with both Yehu and Kiva and has successfully repaid it. With this second loan, she wants to buy sacks of cashew nuts for resale.

What Fatuma expects is to attract new customers taking full advantage of the location she has, which is at a strategic place in the market, a place that’s very busy, which is very beneficial because every day large numbers of people come to this big market.
