Omar's story

Omar is a married man with six children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expense is school fees.

In addition, he also operates a posho mills business grinding maize, which contributes to his other source of income. Omar faces a major challenge of seasonality and breakdown of machine in his business.
