Amin is a married man with two children, both of whom are still too young for school. He lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is rent.

He has operated a shoe-vending business for the past two years, selling in a shop to his neighbors, especially women. Amin faces a major challenge of paying the rent for his shop in his business. He hopes to establish his own shop in the future.

With the 40,000 Kenyan shillings, he wants to purchase a bundle of shoes for resale. He decided to join Yehu because it is located near his area of operation.
