Mohamed is a married man with 3 children, all of whom attend school. He rents a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food, school fees and medical bills.
For the past one and a half years, he has operated a food stall, selling mainly flat bread and beans to his neighbours. Mohamed faces a major challenge of seasonality. He dreams of expanding his business in the future.
With the KES 20,000 he wants to purchase additional stock; mainly bales of wheat flour and maize flour. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
