Mohamed is a single man who lives in a family house that has piped water but not electricity. His greatest monthly expense is food for the extended family.
For the past three years, he has operated a retail shop business, selling to his neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of high cost of transportation in his business. Mohamed dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 he wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
