Mbwana is married and has been blessed with two children. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. He cites food and school fees as his major expenses.
He operates a fruit selling business, selling at retail prices to his neighbors and town dwellers. He faces a major challenge of the bulkiness of goods, hence the high cost of transportation.
With the Kshs 30,000 he wants to purchase sacks of fruits for resale. Mbwana decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
