Duncun is married with two children, both of whom attend school. His wife is a tailor and she helps in the upbringing of their children.
He has been taking photographs door-to-door for the last five years, with his potential customers being wedding parties, parties, his neighbors and passersby. His other source of income is from his wife's earnings.
With the 40,000 Kenyan shilling loan, he wants to open a stall to operate a photo studio. Duncan faces the major challenge of high transport costs when moving from place to place and also seasonality.
He hopes to own the biggest photo studio in the future and earn more income. He decided to work with Yehu to get financial assistance to improve his business. He lives at a rental house with electricity but no piped water and cites food and transport as his greatest monthly expenses.
