Nahashon, age 32 years, is a married man with two children, all of whom attend school. He lives at his own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past two years, he has operated a retail shop business, selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. His potential customers are neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. Nahashon dreams of establishing a wholesale business in the future.
With the loan of KES 25,000 that he is requesting, he wants to purchase stock of wheat flour, maize flour, beans and rice for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
