Ali is a married man with four children, all of whom still attend school and are under his care. They live at their own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
He operates a business of rearing dairy cows and selling their products; he also does crop farming, where he sells products at the market to town dwellers and neighbors. He cites his major challenge to be the high rate of his livestock getting sick, which is affected by seasons.
With the loan he is requesting, he wants to purchase seeds for farming and also buy medicine for his dairy cows.
He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
