Chengo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase bundles of green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and onions.
Chengo is a married man with three children, two of whom are in school and one is still under school age. Chengo lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food, rental bills and school fees. For the past eight years, he has operated a greengrocery shop, selling to his neighbors and passersby. He faces the major challenge of high competition from other greengroceries. With the loan that he is requesting, he wants to purchase bundles of green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and onions. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his business.
