Fatuma is 24 years old and lives with her husband and 4-year-old child in a house they rent. She is a hardworking, honest and tenacious person who would like to provide for her family.

Fatuma works alone in a grocery store. She is requesting her first loan from Yehu as she needs to invest in buying foodstuffs, cleaning products, and medicines for her business. Her customers are asking for products that she does not have and so she is losing both sales and customers. The loan will help her to increase her business and her number of customers. This will make her a very good income with which she can support her family.

Fatuma's dream is to own her own premises since she rents the store she sells from.
