A loan of $375 helped to purchase more goats for sale of meat to earn a living and support his children.


Nyiro's story

Nyiro is a married man with eight school-going kids. He lives at his own house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the last four years, he has operated a goat meat selling business, selling at the market to his neighbors and passersby. He faces a major challenge of competition from other retail shop operators in his business.

With the KES 30,000 loan, he wants to purchase more goats for his meat sales business to earn a living and support his children. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
