Francline is a married man with two children, both of whom are still too young for school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and clothing.
He has been operating an open-air vegetable stall, selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. Francline faces a major challenge of competition from other vegetable stall operators. He hopes to establish a retail shop in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000, he wants to purchase sacks of vegetables, onions and tomatoes for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his living standards.
