Nelly is a woman with a desire to offer better conditions for her family so that they don't suffer from an increase in social violence and poverty that currently oppresses many in the place where they live. This is her main reason for deciding to install a store where she sells basic goods to her neighbors and passersby. She has an abundance of customers, offering accessible prices and a variety of items, but there are products that she doesn't have. Nelly feels the desire and need to increase her source of income, which is why she came to Yehu to ask for a loan to buy her most in-demand products: flour, detergents, sugar, rice and beans. She doesn't have the necessary capital to keep investing in her business. She is sure that she will be able to pay off the loan and gives thanks in advance to all of the good-hearted people who will help her.
