Dorcas is a 40-year-old widowed woman who owns rental houses. She is a visionary woman who always thinks big. In addition to having rental houses, she also owns a cereal-grinding machine. She is happy now that the job is stress-free as she waits until month-end to collect money. The challenge she faces is that some of her tenants are reluctant to pay on time.

Dorcas wants to expand one of her rental houses and build another room. She however does not have enough money to buy the materials. She is asking Yehu for a loan so as to buy cement, blocks, and other building materials.
