A loan of $600 helped to buy a new moto-taxi (three-wheeled motorized vehicle).

Juma's story

Juma, age 27, is married to Aisha, who is a businesswoman. The couple has one child. They live in Msambweni, Kenya.

Juma has been a “moto-taxi” (three-wheeled motorized vehicle) driver for seven years. He has his stop at Msambweni. He says that there are several others in this zone, and that the business activity is very competitive. He cannot miss his shift for even one day, not even with rain or cold.

He also says there is a lot of insecurity in his line of work. At times, the places where he takes his passengers are far away, dark and uninhabited.

Juma's greatest desire is that his children become good people. That way, he will fulfill his obligation as a father. Then he will be able to devote himself to another, safer business activity.

He greatly values the opportunity offered by Yehu Microfinance and Kiva. He is requesting the loan to buy a new moto-taxi.
