Omar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase a power saw for cutting timber for sale.
Omar is a married man with eight children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for his children. For the past fifteen years, he has operated a "boda boda" (motorcycle) transport business. He also operates a timber selling business, which is his other source of income. He faces a major challenge of lack of timber for sale. With the Kshs 80,000 he wants to purchase a power saw for cutting timber for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
