Kambi, aged 44 years, is married to Dzame, a housewife, and they are blessed with four children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.

Kambi operates a charcoal-selling business, selling on a retail basis to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business, especially during the rainy season when it becomes hard to get charcoal. His dream is to establish a shop to sell household consumables in the near future.

With the 30,000 Kenyan shillings, he wants to purchase sacks of charcoal for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
