Dedan is a single man who lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food.
He has operated his internet cafe shop offering play station and internet services for over three months. Dedan faces the major challenge of seasonality. Students are his cafe's main customers. His business high season is when schools are out for holidays and his low season occurs when students have resumed classes. Dedan hopes to operate a music studio in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 he wants to purchase a central processing unit for a computer. Dedan decided to work with Yehu because of its close proximity to his internet cafe.
