Masudi, 43, is the father of four children. He lives in Kaloleni, Kenya.

He has operated a business of making metal boxes for sale. He gained important experience in handling metal products while he was working as a constructor and mason previously.

Masudi's business has allowed him to get ahead, to have a dairy farm, and to earn enough income to have some comforts. His goal is to expand his business more so that his children can obtain a good quality education and be successful in whatever they endeavor.

Masudi is currently planning to take out his first Kiva loan of KES 40,000, which will be his third funding through Yehu Microfinance Trust. He will use it to buy plain metal sheets for making boxes. He generates good profits when he buys in bulk, which is what he plans to do in this instance.
