Cecilia is 45 years old and is a married woman with four children, two of whom are currently schooling. She is a very hardworking woman and her children love her.

Cecilia has been trading for the last seven years and it is out of her income from this that she takes care of her children. She trades cereals such maize, groundnuts (peanuts), beans and other food items. She buys these crops directly from the farmers at a relatively low price. This, she said, protects her from middlemen who sell to her at a higher price.

Cecilia sells at the local market in the town where she lives with her family and also treks with some of her goods to nearby markets to sell as well. She also says that she wants to use the loan to buy the goods in bulk so that she can distribute to a larger number of customers.
