A loan helped to purchase a shaving machine, chairs and repair the walls in his place of operation.


Nehemiah's story

Nehemiah is married with two children, one of whom attends school while the other is still young for school. He rents a house that has electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expense is school fees. For the past three years he has operated a barber shop business, his potential customers being town dwellers and neighbours, especially men. He dreams of expanding his business to meet his family's basic needs. With the loan that he is requesting, he wants to purchase a shaving machine, chairs and repair the walls in his place of operation. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
