Harrison is a married man and has ten children, all of whom left school because the family could not afford their school fees. Harrison owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His largest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past five years, Harrison has operated a business buying goats and selling them for meat at the market, to local neighbors and butcher operators. He faces major challenges of seasonality and high transportation costs in his place of operation.
With the loan that he is requesting, he wants to purchase five goats for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans in order to boost his business.
