Mariam's story

Mariam, aged 37 years, is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

She has operated a retail shop business for the past ten years, selling household consumables, like wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar. She faces a major challenge of high transportation costs.

With the loan of KES 50,000, Mariam is requesting a loan to purchase stocks of sugar, rice, maize flour, and wheat flour. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans, to boost her business.
