Francis is 26 years old and married. He lives with his wife and their one-and-a-half-year old son. They are happy to have this new member of their family. This is in fact their source of joy for their marriage.
Francis decided to set up a grocery store business in his home. In his store he sells staple household products like flour, toilet paper, rice, sugar, sodas, and detergents. His business has been running for three years, and he has a good customer base.
He is requesting a loan of KES 40,000 to stock his store with food balers of flour, sacks of sugar, sacks of rice, and other fast-selling products, so that he can increase his sales.
His goal is to continue to grow and eventually have a wholesale business, so that he can help his family financially.
About Yehu Microfinance Trust
This loan is administered by Yehu Microfinance Trust, which was founded in 1998 as a project of CHOICE Humanitarian Kenya. In July 2007, Yehu became a separate entity from CHOICE and was registered as a trust. Since then, Yehu has expanded to cover over half of Kenya’s 13 coastal districts.
