Athman, a married man with three children, all of whom attend school, lives in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water. School fees are his greatest monthly expense.

For the past 10 years Athman has operated a freshwater sales business, selling from door to door to his neighbours and passersby. His greatest business challenge is seasonality, but he dreams of becoming self-reliant in the future. Athman decided to work with Yehu because of its good customer relations, and with the Kshs 20,000 loan he will purchase a water pumping machine.
