Humprey is a married man with one child who is still too young for school. He owns a house that has piped water but not electricity. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past eight months, he has operated a bodaboda (motorcycle) business, operating from town to town, where his potential clients are town dwellers. He faces a major challenge of competition from other bodaboda operators in the area. Humprey dreams of becoming a big supplier of poultry in the future.
With the Kshs 25,000 he wants to start another business and purchase poultry chicks and chicken feed. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
