Egga is 46 years old and is married to Joto, who is a farmer. Together they have two grown children. She has been a housewife for long until she was able to start a business out of her home. She started her own business in 2004, and she already has a large base of customers.
She presently buys and sells goats at the market. However, she does not go to the market herself; instead, her older son operates it for her. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase more goats for resale.
