Mwinyi is a married man with three children, all of whom of whom attend school. He owns a house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past four years, he has operated a retail shop business, selling to his neighbors and passersby. Mwinyi faces the major challenge of the high cost of transporting goods from town to his place of operation. He dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the future.
With the KSHS 80,000, he wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, cooking fat oil and sugar. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
