Rehema is a married woman with three children, all of whom attend school. She lives in her own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past six years, Rehema has operated a coconut and brooms shop business, selling from home to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge in her business of high costs of transportation. Rehema dreams of establishing a wholesale business in the future.
With the loan that she is requesting of KES 15,000, Rehema wants to purchase sacks of coconuts and bundles of brooms, and to pay for transportation. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
