Marko is a married man with five children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past five years, he has operated a green grocer business, selling from home to his neighbours and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality, especially during the dry hot season when the availability of green groceries is lower. He dreams of establishing a wholesale green grocer shop in the future.

With the Kshs 20,000, he wants to purchase sacks of tomatoes, onions and vegetables. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
