Lucy is 37 years old and lives with her husband and two children in their own house. She has a store where she sells basic necessities like bread, beans, rice, eggs, and other items. She has a lot of sales experience because she has had this business for two years, so she always makes good profits.
The business is located in her home, which is in an area traveled by many people. This has meant many customers for her. Lucy is a very entrepreneurial woman with a great desire to improve her circumstances. Every day she dedicates herself completely to her work because she knows that this is the only way she will achieve success.
She also owns a motorcycle taxi; she has hired an employee to operate it.
Lucy would like to expand her retail business. In order to do so, she needs to make a new investment, which is why she is requesting a loan from Yehu in order to buy basic grains, candies, instant products, beverages, etc.
