Macdonald is a married man with one girl who attends school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food, rent bills, school fees and electricity.

For the past four years, he has operated a tailoring business, selling in a shop to his neighbors and passersby. Macdonald faces a major challenge of competition from other tailors in the area. He dreams of purchasing another sewing machine in the future.

With the KSHS 20,000, he wants to purchase cloth materials for his tailoring business. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his business.
