Rukia's story

Rukia is a married woman, and she lives together with her husband and eight children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past seventeen years, she has operated a business selling charcoal. She sells from home, to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge, the high cost of transportation. She dreams of expanding her business, to become a wholesale supplier of firewood in the village. With the KES 50,000 loan, she wants to purchase bundles of charcoal to resell. She decided to join Yehu to access loans, to boost her business.
