Christopher, age 48 years old, is married and has seven children. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family and school fees for the children.
For the past ten years, he has operated a butchery business. He sells meat to his neighbors and passersby. His major challenge in the business is seasonality and transportation of the animals to his place of work.
With the Ksh 15,000 he wants to purchase a new weighing machine for his business. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business and improve his living standards.
