A loan of $200 helped to purchase bags of charcoal to offer for sale.


James's story

James sells charcoal to earn an income. He supports his wife and their four children, all of whom attend school. The family lives in a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

James sells his charcoal from his home to his neighbors and to passers-by. His major challenge in the business is the high cost of transportation. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business. With the loan he is requesting, he intends to purchase bags of charcoal to offer for sale.
