She is a very hardworking, responsible person with a lot of experience in her work.
Mzisadar requested a loan to expand her greenhouse business and to build a cattle-shed. She plans to expand the dairy farm, but the existing conditions don’t allow her to implement this plan. With this loan, she will be able to double her vegetable and dairy production and increase the income of the family.
