Zuma is 42, married and has four children, one of whom attends school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For over six years Zuma has sold tins at wholesale to his neighbors and passersby. He faces the challenges of seasonality and the high cost of transportation.
Zuma decided to join Yehu to access its loans so he might boost his business. He is applying for a 30,000 KES loan through Yehu to buy additional tins[containers] to sell. His ambition is to establish a retail shop in the future.
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.
