Nadzua, 34, lives in her own house with her husband and seven children. She sells charcoal at the market. She’s a very enterprising woman who works hard to help cover household expenses and earn a little money to cover some needs. She’s struggled to keep her business afloat because competition is always there. She’s been in business for many years so has many regular customers who prefer her more every day since she’s a very charismatic, honest working woman.
She’s decided to ask Yehu for a loan because she wants to invest in her business buying more sacks of charcoal that will allow her to keep her business well-stocked. This will lead to improved profits that will give her the opportunity of attaining a better quality of life. She states that she’s very grateful to this institution because it provided her with help in the past when she most needed it. She hopes to have favorable results this time too.
