Omari's story

Omari is a divorced man and has nine children, all of whom attend school. They own a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food for the family. For the past ten years, he has operated a business selling dried fish, selling from home to his neighbours and passers-by. In addition, he is involved in a quarrying business, which is his other source of earnings and livelihood. He faces a major challenge of seasonality in his business. He dreams of becoming a major supplier of dried fish, in the near future.

He originally decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business. He wants to pay school fees for his children, with this KES 20,000 loan.
