Suleiman is a married man with one child who attends school. He lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
For the past six years, he has operated a retail shop business, selling household consumptions to his neighbors and passersby. He also sells farm products, which contributes to his other source of income. Suleiman faces a major challenge of delayed payments by those who purchase goods on credit. He dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
With the KSHS 40,000, he wants to purchase bundles of maize flour, wheat flour, sugar and cooking fat oil. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
