With the new loan she has requested, Vestine will be able to purchase more sorghum in sacks for resale, which will help her to earn more profit and to expand her business. With the expansion of her business, she hopes to employ neighbors in the community so that they can send their children to school. She also hopes that once this business grows, people in her community will be able to buy groceries and she will be able to pay school fees for her own children.
