Sammy G. is a married man with three children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

He has operated a retail shop for the past five years, selling as retail to his neighbours. Sammy's major challenge is the high cost of transportation in his business. He hopes to establish a wholesale shop in the future.

With the KES 40,000 he wants to purchase bundles of maize flour, sacks of sugar and cooking oil. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his business.
