Chizi is 50 years old and lives in her own house. She sells tea leaves door-to-door. She is a widow and therefore the breadwinner in her home.

Chizi has been in business for over 20 years and has gained much experience in making sales. She has many customers who prefer the quality of her product, the good prices that she offers, and the excellent service that she provides. She is an active woman who is dedicated to her work and has the drive to succeed.

Chizi always expects that there will be opportunities that will help her pursue her dreams. She wants to have a more prosperous future, so she is willing to work hard in order to be successful.

Demand has increased within the past few weeks, so Chizi is requesting a loan from Yehu so that she can invest in the purchase of a sack of tea leaves. She has good payment references and impeccable character. She says that she will repay her debt according to the established terms and hopes to provide her family a full life.
