Mangale owns a house that has neither electricity nor running water. His largest monthly expense is food for his family.
For the past five years, Mangale has operated a business selling food products in his stall and selling at the market to local neighbors. He faces a major challenge of seasonality and high transportation costs in his place of operation.
With the loan that he is requesting, he wants to purchase bags of rice, sugar, salt, and wheat flour for resale. He decided to join Yehu in order to access loans to boost his business.
