Issa, 50, leaves in Msambweni, Kenya. He is a good entrepreneur, and for two years he has owned his own business. He operates a business transporting goods such as blocks, soil and sand. In addition, Issa operates a kiosk which he has been running for the past one year. Today his dreams continue to grow and his goals are to continue increasing his income so that he can establish a retail shop business and expand to a wholesale shop and become very successful.

Issa's market is growing and so is the amount of capital that he needs to continue providing the products his customers demand. This will be his first loan from Yehu Microfinance Trust. He will use it to buy wheat flour, maize flour, rice and sugar that he will promote in his business with special discounts. He wants to offer great prices to his customers so that he can continue earning their loyalty, and this is why he will be successful in investing his Credit Kiva loan in his business.
