Said is 46 years old and lives with his life partner and their three children. He is a hard-working person who has been selling fresh fruits for the past 20 years. Said owns a house that has both electricity and piped water. His spouse is a businesswoman. He says the perishable and seasonal nature of his products are the major drawbacks of his business. Said is working hard to educate his children, all of whom are still in primary school.
Said is requesting a loan from Yehu to buy fruit, such as mangoes and oranges. He sells his fruit in one of the municipal markets. He would like to carry out this work with diligence so that he can improve the family's quality of life. He says that this will give him a more comfortable home for his young ones.
