Lali is from the village of Matani. She is 56 years old, married, and lives with her husband and 29-year-old daughter. Lali’s husband and daughter work at the local green grocery and get monthly salaries. The family is busy with an agricultural business. They have a small dairy farm. Milk is used for cheese production, which is sold locally. Along with the dairy, Lali is involved in clothing trading. She purchases clothes at a wholesale price and then sells them among her villagers at a retail price.
Lali requested credit to purchase seasonal clothes for resale. She will offer a wide assortment of the clothes to the customers and increase her sales, and, consequently, her profit. She will reinvest part of the profit in the same business, and the other part will be used for improving the family's living conditions.
