Hanifa is 29 years old and has four children. She has one year of experience running her own green grocery store; before she was only responsible for taking care of the home. The products that she needs for her store she buys in the municipal market and sells in her rural home. The loan she is asking for from Yehu is to purchase onions, tomatoes, and some vegetables, so as to increase her store's stock. She has the objective of increasing sales, which will allow her to improve her standard of living (food, health, clothing). With the earnings from her business, she will try to pay for her children's schooling, so that they can continue with their education, and also to make improvements to her house.
