A loan of $500 helped to purchase bales of clothes and bundles of firewood for reselling.


Fatuma's story

Fatuma is a very good homemaker who's dedicated to her household, to taking care of her children and to sales. She has been selling clothing and firewood for the last seven years, in addition to owning a food stall. She sells door to door and from home.

Fatuma is grateful for the loans she is receiving from Yehu and Kiva. She says that the previous loan was the stepping stone to opening several businesses. Thanks for helping with her visionary efforts.

She will use this new loan to purchase bales of clothes and bundles of firewood for reselling, since she has orders to deliver. Her dreams are to move forward with her businesses and to provide the best for her children.
