Mwanasha, 32, lives with her life companion and four young, dependent children. She has a store where she sells basic staples, basic grains, bread, milk and soap, among other items. She’s been in business for three years, and it’s always had good results. It’s located in a very strategic spot, and she’s acquired a large clientele that prefers her because she always has what they need: good quality products at accessible prices with excellent service besides.

Mwanasha is a very enterprising woman who very much wants to get ahead and is always on the lookout for new opportunities to prove to herself that she can reach success working hard and with dedication. Demand has increased, and she needs to invest in more products to not disappoint her customers, which is why she’s asking Yehu for a loan to buy basic grains, bread, snacks, instant products, soap,flour, etc. She feels happy with the support and is sure that she’ll be able to repay the loan while at the same time providing her family with a better quality of life.
