Ali is a married man with 12 children, three of whom attend school. He lives at his own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is school fees for his children.
For the past seven years, he has operated a farming business, selling at the market to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality. During hot summer season, he experiences droughts that lead to low production of produce. He dreams of becoming a big supplier of farm produce in the future.
With the KES 60,000 he wants to purchase six cattle's each costing Kshs 10,000 for his farming business. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
