Omar's story

Omar, a married man with four children, two of whom still attend school, lives in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past eight years, Omar has operated a grocery business, selling as wholesale and retail to his neighbours. His greatest challenge is seasonality, as during the rainy season his number of customers drops. He dreams of expanding into a wholesale shop in the future.

Having joined Yehu to access loans to boost his business, he is requesting a loan of Kshs 25,000 to purchase bundles of vegetables, potatoes, tomatoes and onions.
