Aloys is a 67-year-old man who is married and has eight children, four of whom are in school. For the past two years, he has operated a dried fish selling business.He packs the dry fish in small plastic bags before selling them. In addition, he sells chicken mostly to cafes and restaurants. It has been a profitable project, but he needs more support to cover the costs.
Aloys is requesting a 30,000 KES loan from Yehu to help him cover the costs of purchasing more stock of dried fish and chicken for sale. This will improve the quality of his work, satisfy his customers, and improve his income.
Aloys dreams of opening a shop in the near future. He lives in his own house that has electricity but no piped water.
