Omar's story

Omar is a married man with eight children, all of whom attend school. He owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees for his children.

For the past fifteen years, he has operated a "boda boda" (motorcycle) transport business. He also operates a timber selling business, which is his other source of income. He faces a major challenge of lack of timber for sale.

With the Kshs 80,000 he wants to purchase a power saw for cutting timber for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
