Mbuja is married and has three children; two are in school and one is still too young. He owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees. For the past six years, he has operated a charcoal selling business and a food kiosk business from his home, selling to local neighbors. His major business challenge is transportation. He dreams of establishing a wholesale business store. With the KES100,000 loan he has requested, he would like to purchase charcoal, cooking oil, sugar, cereals, such as rice, beans and maize for resale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
