For the past five years, Joseph has operated a clothes-selling business, selling at the market to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing clothes for resale. He dreams of establishing a stall to sell clothes at in the future.
With the KES 20,000, he wants to purchase bales of clothes for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
