Hamisi's story

Hamisi is a married man with six children, all of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity but doesn't have piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are school fees and rent bills. For the past three years, he has operated a charcoal selling business, selling as retail to his neighbours and passersby. He also operates a retail shop business which contributes his other source of income. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. He dreams of expanding to a wholesale shop in the future. With the Kshs 80,000 loan, he wants to purchase sacks of charcoal and, for his retail shop, sacks of rice, sugar and beans. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
