Omar
Omar is a married man and has six school-going children. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

He has operated a fish-selling business at the market for the past five years, selling to his town dwellers and neighbors. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing fish.

He is requesting a loan to purchase bundles of fish for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans at lower cost to improve his business.
