Lydia is a married woman and has one child who attends school.

Lydia operates a paraffin-selling business. She tells us that she begins her daily activities very early in the morning and returns home very late at night. She says she has been doing this for more than two months. She has her house in one of the neighborhoods in Kisauni.

She is requesting the loan to buy litres of paraffin, the main supply of her business.

She is grateful to Yehu Microfinance for the opportunity this gives her because the loan will be a big help to her.
