Karisa is married and has been blessed with children. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. He cites food and school fees as his major challenges.
Karisa has operated a goat meat-selling business in which he sells retail to his neighbors and town-dwellers. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation to his place of operation.
With the KES 50,000 loan, he wants to purchase seven goats to sell. Karisa decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost his business.
