The Prospero Foundation, founded by Ulrik DeBo of DeBondo Capital, is excited to announce that a microloan donation has been made to Mbodze, a hardworking businesswoman from Kenya.

Mbodze is from the coastal town of Tiribe, where her and her husband raise their nine children in a house with no electricity or plumbing. For the past two years she has sold charcoal to her neighbours and passers-by; a microloan donation like the one The Prospero Foundation has contributed will allow her to reach her aim of building a wholesale shop so her profits will increase, allowing the family to improve their standard of living. The funds will be used to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale.

About Micro-lending with The Prospero Foundation
Through partnerships with local lending institutions, the Prospero Foundation contributes capital for the purpose of small business loans to these micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations. Through these partnerships, the Foundation helps small business people such as farmers, shopkeepers, and artisans build their businesses and in turn stimulate economic development in their communities. 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.
