Mwanamtama, 47, lives with her family in Msambweni which is in Coast Province. She considers herself to be a very cheerful person who enjoys her work and is very supportive of others.
She has had a small business selling fish from her home, a business she has been in for the last three years. The current loan, being her first with Yehu, is to buy more stock of fish and a weighing machine.
Her dream is to open a retail shop some day.
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.
