Happy, 19, lives with her life partner. She is still childless.

She sells fruits and vegetables: brinjals (eggplant), tomatoes, onions, cabbages, oranges, and others. She has been a merchant for three years and has gained the sales experience necessary to increase her profits. Her stall is in the market in her neighborhood. She has regular customers because she is well-known.

Happy is active, dedicated to her work, and has many goals. She works very hard each day to reach these goals and, thereby, achieve success. Like every good merchant, she wants to grow her business and make new investments. She needs capital to do so and has applied for a loan with Yehu to buy more fruits and vegetables.

Happy has good credit references and is very responsible. She is certain she will repay the loan while giving her family a better life.
