Edwin is a single man who owns a house with piped water but no electricity. His greatest monthly expense is food for himself.

Edwin has operated a nursery school for the past two years. His potential clients are his neighbors’ children. His major challenge is the lack of enough capital to hire professional teachers.

Edwin decided to join Yehu because it has fair loan terms and conditions. With a 20,000 KES loan he wants to purchase text books, desks and chairs for his school. He dreams of expanding his nursery school to include a primary school level.
