Sudi is a married man with two children who are still too young for school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food.
He has operated a vegetable selling business, for over three years. His potential customers are his neighbours. Sudi faces a major challenge of price fluctuation due to seasonality of the products. He hopes to expand and establish a cereal business in the future.
He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his living standards. With the Kshs 20,000 he wants to purchase sacks of vegetables for sale.
