Winnie, who is 31 years old, describes herself as a happy, enterprising person who is, above all, working very hard to get her children ahead. Winnie lives with her husband and three children in the town of Tiribe.

She sells shoes at the market to help her husband with the household expenses. At the moment, she has a good customer base, but the challenge is that she does not have enough capital to stock her store with merchandise. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Yehu for the purchase of more stocks of shoes, so that her customers will have a good variety to choose from.

This investment will allow her to expand her customer base, increase her sales, and increase her income. This will help her to support her family.

Winnie dreams of having a boutique in future.
