Abigael is married and has 2 children all of whom are still in primary school. They live at their own house that has piped water but no electricity.
Abigael operates a food stall business. She began this business with some money that she had saved.
In addition to having the food stall business, Abigael also sells goat meat. With the money she earns from this business, she is able to cover the household costs and provide for her children's education.
She explains that the only way of being able to develop the business is through loans, since it is very difficult to secure sufficient capital through other means. It is for this reason that she has requested the loan. She is a very responsible person, who wants to succeed. She has a jovial spirit and is enterprising.
