George is a married man with four children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has piped water but not electricity. His greatest monthly expense is school fees for the family.
For the past twelve years, he has operated a goat trading business. He buys and sell goats retail from home. His potential customers are neighbors and butcher operators. George faces a major challenge of delayed payments by creditors who purchase on credit. He hopes to become a wholesale supplier in the future.
With the KShs 20,000, he wants to purchase goats for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his business.
