Dogo is a married man with two children both of whom attend school. He owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and clothing.
For the past five years, he has operated a "boda boda" (motorcycle transport) business; his potential customers are neighbours and passersby. In addition he also operates a spare parts shop, selling retail; this is his other source of income. Dogo dreams of expanding his shop to a wholesale shop in the future.
With the Kshs 40,000 he wants to purchase spare parts to add to his stock of spare parts. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
