Peter is a married and has two children, both of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped-in water. His greatest monthly expense is buying food for his family.

For the last several years, Peter has made a living by running a store where he sells items to people who live in his community. He also runs a business on the side where he grows and sells vegetables. His main challenge is that his income varies by season, and he would like to resolve that problem in the future by opening a retail business.

Peter recently joined Yehu to get financial help to improve his business. He has applied for a loan for Kshs 30,000 to buy maize flour, sugar, beans, rice and phone cards to sell to his customers.
