Dorothy, a 39-year-old woman, rents a house where she lives with her two children, both of whom are studying.

Dorothy has a small shop where she sells a variety of items such as rice, beans, flour, sugar, oil, and detergent. She has been doing this for some years and, thanks to God and her determination, she has managed to keep it going for all this time. Dorothy is very hard-working and, above all, very enterprising and responsible. Her dream is for her business to flourish and to increase her income, so she can improve her and her family's quality of life.

With this in mind, she has applied for a loan from Yehu Microfinance Trust to invest in her small store by buying merchandise such as flour, sugar, rice, beans, detergent, coffee, snacks, and more. As long as her shop always stocks what her customers are looking for, Dorothy will be able to achieve her dream of improving her and her family's living conditions. She trusts in God that this will happen.
