Khalfan's story

Khalfan M. is a married man with no children. He owns a home with electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and transport costs. He decided to join Yehu in order to obtain a loan to raise his standard of living in the future.

Khalfan has operated a barber shop for three years, and he faces the major challenge of theft. His wife is a hairdresser by profession and she contributes to the family's basic needs. His wife's contributions are his other source of income.

He would like to use this loan of 20,000 Kenyan shillings (Ksh) to pay the rent to start another barber shop. His potential customers are men and school-going children. Khalfan hopes to someday own a salon as well as another barber shop.
