Mary is forty-nine years old and lives with her grown up son. She owns a rental house, which is her only source of income and sustenance. Recently, the roof of her rental house was damaged. With the rainy season approaching, Mary needs to have her roof repaired to ensure the comfort and safety of her tenants. Mary needs to buy materials but does not have enough money, so she is requesting a loan from Yehu to buy new iron sheets and lumber. Mary has good credit references and is very responsible. She is sure she will succeed in repaying her loan and grant her son the economic security he deserves.
