Zaddock is a married man with one son who is still too young for school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and rent bills.
For the past four years, he has operated a hardware business, selling in a shop to his neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. Zaddock dreams of becoming a leading supplier of timber in the future.
With the Kshs 20,000 he wants to purchase timber for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
