Dishoni is a married man with four children, all of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.
For the past 10 years, Dishoni has been operating a green grocer business, selling retail to his neighbours and passersby. Dishoni faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. During the rainy season, the supply of vegetables for sale is higher and the demand is lower, while during dry hot season the demand is higher and supply is lower. Jackson dreams of expanding his business and establishing a grocery shop in the future.
With this loan for Kshs 40,000, Jackson wants to purchase sacks of onions, tomatoes, carrots and bananas for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
