She owns a store that sells perishable products. In addition, she sells comestics such as hair gel, nail polish, and deodorants, which allows her to earn some extra income. She is seeking out a loan so that she can increase the quantity of products in her store. She has owned her store for five years and even now, she finds it difficult to stock it with all of the necessary items. For this reason, she hopes to obtain products that are in high demand, such as basic grains, soft drinks, and meat. Ultimately, she wants to increase sales so that she can provide a better life for her family, who depend heavily on her and her husband to move ahead.
