Joyce is a hardworking woman. For years now, she has been working in the seafood business. She learned it out of the necessity to have a source of income for her family. Joyce buys her fish from fishermen along the coastal region of the city.

The loan she is asking for will be invested in buying more stock of fish, which will be paid for in full. Thus, she will invest it in her seafood selling business.

Joyce says that her business is profitable and that is why she has the urge to expand it and earn more income. With the income, she will save a little to continue educating her children.
