A loan of $600 helped to purchase sacks of charcoal and firewood for resale.


Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel operates a charcoal-selling business and his potential clients are neighbours and passers-by. He dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.

With the loan of KES 50,000 he wants to purchase sacks of charcoal and firewood for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access financial support to improve his business and again he appreciates the previous Kiva loan which helped him to boost his business.
