Salma is a married mother of one child. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past four years, she has operated an open-air food-stall business; her potential customers are market dwellers and neighbors. She faces a major challenge of price fluctuations of products in the market.
With the 20,000 Kenyan shillings, she wants to purchase sacks of beans, cooking oil, wheat flour and rice. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
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.
