Salama lives in her own house that neither has electricity nor piped water. For the past two years, she has operated a retail shop business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. She mentioned price fluctuation as her major challenge.
With the KES 50,000 she wants to purchase maize flour, rice, beans and cooking oil for resale. 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.
