Fati is 28 years old. She is married and is a mother with three children. Currently all of her children are schooling. They are a very humble family who want to invest in their children’s future by providing them with a quality education.
Fati is a petty trader and sells items like cooking oil, spices, pepper, onions, smoked and dried fish, tinned tomatoes, bags of rice, etc. In selling these products, she says, they move very fast and you can easily recover your money. She takes delivery of goods from the surrounding communities where she lives.
With her three years experience in her business Fati wants to add other goods like cereals to increase her product line to retain her customers. She believes that this can be possible with the help of loan assistance. Therefore she wants the loan to buy more bags of raw materials like rice, spices, tinned tomatoes, etc.
Fati is much convinced that the loan would help her increase her stock in the event of a price hike. She also believes this would help her save more towards her kid’s education.
