Safari is a married man with eight children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food, school fees and clothing.
For over ten years, he has operated a meat goat selling business. He sells at the market to his neighbours and passersby. Safari faces a major challenge of competition and high cost of transportation in his business. He hopes to establish a butcher shop in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 he wants to purchase goat meat at a wholesale price and resale at a retail price. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his business.
