Rumba's story

Rumba is a married man with five children, four of whom attend school while one is still too young for school. He owns a house that has electricity but not piped water.

He has operated a retail shop business for the past seven years, selling household consumables like wheat flour, maize flour and sugar. He faces the major challenge of debtors waiting too long to repay money for goods bought on credit.

With the loan Rumba is requesting, he wants to purchase a stock of sugar, rice, maize flour and wheat flour. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
