Benetta lives in Gardnesville and is 44 years old. She is married with two children, ages 20 and 26. Her children are in school.
Benetta learned to sell from her mother. She has been involved in this business for the past eight years. She earns profits because she is the only person who sells coal in her community. She is proud because she earns her own income and helps her husband with the household expenses and her children's school fees.
Benetta is requesting a loan to purchase more bags of coal for her business. Her future plan is to build a shop in which to stock her coal.
