Lucy, thirty-three, lives in Logan Town with her husband and two school-going children aged eight and fifteen. She and her husband have been running a grocery shop where they sell rice, soda and soft drinks, oil, mineral water and other items to make meals. She says that the business allows them to send their children to school. She says they started this business doing plaiting and hairdressing in her community.
She is requesting the loan to buy more rice, oil, mineral water, soda and soft drinks for her business. Her plans are to expand her business even more and in the future she would like to see her children finish high-school and attending college.
