Charo, 61, is a married man with 12 children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past five years, he has operated a retail shop business, selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. He cites seasonality and delayed payments as a challenge in the business.
With the KES 50,000 he wants to purchase maize flour, beans and sugar. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
