Joseph is married and has nine kids who attend school. He owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food and school fees for the family.
For the past ten years, he has operated a goat meat business. His potential customers are butcher operators. In addition, he also operates a crop farming business which is another source of income. His major challenges are high costs of transportation to his place of operation.
With the 30,000 KES, he wants to purchase nine goats for meat resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business and improve his living standards.
