Gibson lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor running water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past few years, he has operated a food kiosk business, selling food such as maize flour and cooking fat to his neighbours and passersby. Gibson names the high cost of seasonality as his major business challenge. He dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
With the 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES) loan that he has applied for, he wants to purchase more goods such as maize flour, rice, beans, sugar and cooking oil. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
