Stephen's story

Stephen is a married man with three children, two of whom attend school while one is under age. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past 5 years, he has raised vegetables for sale, selling at the market to his neighboring community members. He faces major challenges of high cost of transportation and seasonality in his business. Stephen dreams of expanding his business to earn more income to improve his family living standards.

With the 40,000 KES loan, he wants to purchase vegetable seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
