Kyalo is a married man with four children, three of whom attend school while one is still too young for school. He lives in a house that he owns; it neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past ten years, he has operated a carving business, selling at the market to his neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation. He dreams of establishing a carving school in future.
With the Kshs 20,000 he wants to purchase two bulls to use in farming. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
