A loan of $475 helped to buy pulses, fruit and vegetables to sell at her market stall.


Lydia's story

Lydia is 53 year old, and is a divorced mother with five children, all of whom are grown-up.

Lydia is requesting a loan to invest in her business, in which she sells fruis and vegetables. She has a stall at a market in Msambweni, and works there every day from 8am to 5pm, or until she has sold all her products. She gets her stock from the wholesale market, where she buys what she needs to sell each day. She has had this business for more than five years and it allows her to get by.

This new loan is to buy pulses, fruit and vegetables. This is Lydia's fourth cycle with Yehu Microfinance and she likes it because of the help she gets with the loans.
