Korpo lives in Paynesville. She is married and 41 years old. She has four children between 7 to 18 years old that are in school and live at home. Her husband is a government worker. For the past ten years, she has been running a provision shop, which sells rice, soap, toothpaste, oil, tissue, milk, batteries, and many other items. She says some problems she is facing are the location of her shop and having fewer commodities. She started this business with help from her mother and learned this way from her mother. She is requesting a loan to purchase more inventory (rice, soap, toothpaste, oil, tissue, milk, batteries, and many other items) for her shop. She says she is happy of her business for so many reasons: it keeps her busy, it builds her trust, and it makes her well-known (every one in her community looks up to her for help if the community needs it). She smiles as she says her plan is to expand her business and empower others with her business.
