Juma is married and has five children, all of whom attend school. His wife is a housewife, and she supports him in taking care of the kids. They live in their own house that has neither electricity nor piped water.
Juma has operated a coconut-selling business for the past ten years, selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. In addition, he also sells farm products which is another source of livelihood.
With this loan, he wants to purchase 10 sacks of coconuts and pay for labour for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
