Mary is forty years old and she lives in her own house with her life partner and their children. She sells fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, tomatoes, onions, and other items. She has been engaged in this activity for three years and she has gained a lot of experience in retailing. She has many customers because people prefer her, as she always has what they need, because she sells quality products at affordable prices, and because she offers good service, constantly focused on customers’ needs.
Mary is a determined and tenacious woman with a great desire to progress in life. She is working very hard to achieve her goal, and just like every good retailer she wants to expand her activity now that there has been an increase in the requests, but she needs money. For this reason she is requesting a loan from Yehu in order to buy tomatoes, onions, potatoes, cabbages, kale and other products. Mary grants she will be able to repay her loan according to schedule. She hopes she will succeed in granting a better standard of living to her family.
