Abdalla, 31, is married and has one child who is too young to attend school. He rents a house that has electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food.
For the past four years, he has been operating a shop and a motorcycle business, locally referred to as “bodaboda”. His major customers are the general public. Thieves pose a major challenge to his business. He dreams of buying a motor vehicle in the future.
With the Kshs 60,000 he wants to purchase additional stock for his shop as well as to repair his motorcycle. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to uplift his living standards.
