Peter is a married man with one child who is too young for school. His wife is a teacher who contributes to the provision of the family's basic needs. He lives in a rental house with neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for his family.
He has operated a tailoring business for the past year; he also practices farming. His potential clients are anyone who needs his services. He faces a major challenge of seasonality as the demand is high during the end of the month. He dreams of making more profit from his business.
With the 35,000 Kenyan shillings, he wants to purchase a zigzag sewing machine, threads, lining and zips. He decided to join Yehu because it eradicates poverty in rural areas.
