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

For the past 10 years, he has operated a vegetable stall business, selling at the market to his neighbours and passersby. He faces the major challenge of seasonality in his business. During the dry hot season, the availability of green vegetables is lower compared to rainy seasons. He dreams of becoming a wholesale supplier in the future.

With the Kshs 60,000 loan, he wants to renovate his vegetable stall, and buy green vegetables and tomatoes. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
