Bakari's story

Bakari is married and has six children, all in school. He owns a house that has electricity but no piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

He has operated a fish selling business at the market for the past 26 years, selling to town dwellers and neighbors. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing fish, especially during cold currents in the deep sea.

He is requesting a loan of Kes 50,000 to purchase bundles of fish, cooking oil and firewood. He decided to join Yehu to access loans at a lower cost, in order to improve his business.
