Sidi's story

Sidi, who is 56, lives in the town of Kaloleni. She has now been running her shop for a number of years. The shop is situated in her home, which she has adapted to attract customers' attention. Her neighbours are complimentary both about her work and about Sidi as a person. She is well known and popular as she is a very friendly and hardworking woman, despite her old age. She has gained the trust of her neighbours who can see how she has bettered herself day by day.

Her dearest wish is to continue making an income from her business which, to date, has helped her to cover most of her household needs. She decided to apply for this loan to enable her to increase the stock for her shop, as she does not have the means to make such an investment on her own. The loan which she is seeking from Yehu will be used to buy a range of goods for the shop such as flour, oil, rice, sugar, beans, sweets and drinks. She wants to meet the growing market demand as this will allow her to increase her income, and provide better opportunities in life for her family.
