Edson is a married man who lives in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expense is rent bills. He has operated a retail shop for the past two years, selling to local residents. The high cost of transporting commodities in his business is the major challenge Edson confronts. Nonetheless, he hopes to expand his business and sell wholesale in the future.
Edson decided to join Yehu because of the efficiency of its loan products, and with the Kshs 20,000 loan he wants to purchase bundles of maize flour, sugar and cooking oil.
