Simon is a married man with one child who attends school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past three years, he has operated a boda boda (motorcycle) business, traveling from home to the market where villagers are his potential customers. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing fuel. He dreams of expanding and purchasing another motorcycle in the future.

With the KES 40,000 loan, he wants to purchase spare parts to service his motorcycle. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
