Shida is a married man with five children, three boys and two girls. He lives in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food, clothing and school fees.

For the past two years, he has operated a café business, selling cooked food such as beans, rice and chapati (flat bread) to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of competition from other café operators in the future.

With the KES 20,000 loan, he wants to purchase furniture for his café business, chairs and tables. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
