Ezekiel's story

Ezekiel is a married man with three children, all of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

For the past two years, he has operated a food café business, selling to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. Ezekiel dreams of expanding his business to meet the client demand.

With the KES 20,000, he wants to purchase a stock of food, wheat flour, maize flour, cooking oil and rice. He decided to join Yehu because of the flexible products offered.
