Martin's story

Martin has been operating his retail business for the last three years. Previously he was working as a truck driver. The photo was taken at the main entrance of his shop. He sells retail in his community. The major challenge in his business is seasonality. Martin has another source of income from a side job driving commercial vehicles. He is a married man with a one year old child. He rents a house with electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and rent.

With this loan of 20,000 Kenyan shillings, Martin wants to purchase three bundles of wheat flour, maize flour and a sack of rice and to expand his business. Martin hopes that in future he will sell wholesale and cover a larger market. He decided to work with Yehu because of the accessibility to sustainable financial services.
