Susan is single and has been a member of Kiva partner Yehu Microfinance since 2011. She buys and sells coal.
She started her business with a wooden wheelbarrow, which she still owns. But over time she bought other work tools, eventually acquiring an open motorcar for her sales activity and product delivery to customers. The problem was that rainy days posed inconveniences.
She is requesting a loan in order to buy charcoal to fill customer orders.
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.
