For the past five years, she has operated a bodaboda (motorcycle) transport business. Her potential customers are town dwellers. She cites the high cost of maintenance as being her major challenge.

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.
