Rose lives with her husband who is a gardener by profession. They do not have children, and they live at a rental house. Her business is fresh water supply, which she has had for 3 years. She sells water from home to her local residents.

She is requesting a loan because she needs to start another vegetable stall business, and purchase vegetables, fruits, potatoes and onions for sale. This loan will help her expand her business and earn more profits to enable her to meet her family's needs.

Her plan for the future is to use the income from the business to be able to stabilize her financial condition. She decided to join Yehu because of the availability of sustainable financial services.
