Salim is a married man with two children, both of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past 12 years, he has operated a business making fruits juices for sale and selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his place of operation. Salim dreams of establishing another business in the future.
With the Kshs 30,000, he wants to purchase a new cooler box to store fruit juices for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
