Raphael is a married man with three children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Raphael has operated a retail shop business, selling household consumptions like wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. He also operates a farming business that contributes to his other source of income. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business.
With the 70,000 Kenyan shillings, he wants to purchase a water tank, do plumbing to sell water, and to purchase a generator. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his living standards.
