Santa is a married man with two children, both of whom attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is school fees.

For the past year, he has operated a retail shop, selling to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. Santa dreams of expanding his business to a wholesale shop in the future.

With the KES 20,000 he wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, sugar, maize flour and kerosene for sale. He decided to work with Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
