Kenga is a 49-year-old widowed man with three school-going children. He owns a house with neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food for his family and school fees for his children.
Kenga has operated as a weaved-items (mats, baskets) seller for the past 10 years; he sells his goods from his home and at the market. His potential clients are his neighbors, friends and relatives. He faces a major challenge of transportation. He dreams of opening a shop where he can sell his products.
With the Kshs 20,000 he wants to purchase more weaving materials for making his products. He decided to join Yehu Microfinance because it helps people by granting loans.
