Hannington's story

Hannington is a single man who has been operating a tailoring business for the last 13 years, serving and selling finished clothes to the local residents. In addition, he sells coconuts which provide him with another source of income. Hannington lives in his own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. He dreams of opening a tailor training institute in future. He states that some of his customers take a long time before they collect their ordered clothes which affects his business. He joined Yehu to get loans.
With the loan of KES 50,000, he plans to purchase clothing materials and a stock of coconuts for sale.
