Fatuma is married, and has children. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and food for the family.
For the past two years, she has operated a green grocery selling business. She sells to her neighbours and passersby. Her major challenge is seasonal availability of products, which reduces sales.
With the 50,000 KES loan she wants to purchase sacks of green vegetables, tomatoes and onions for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
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.
