N. Safina is thirty-seven years old. She is a married woman who is blessed with six children, all of whom go to school. She also cares for one dependent who is is in school, too.
N. runs a retail shop where she sells drinks and snacks, such as cakes, biscuits, bread, and crisps, and groceries, such as soap, salt, and sugar. She opened her shop in 2005. She is using her loan to stock as many retail items as she can to raise her profit. She is so encouraged since she found out that there is always somewhere to find rescue even when there was no hope of getting money to add capital to her business. Her dream is to buy a car that she will use to generate income.
