Anifa is a thirty three year old married woman living in Bundibugyo,Uganda. She has a cocoa business and a side income from selling spare parts. She has been in business for over 10 years. She started the business in order to afford an education for her children since her husband was not able to earn enough to meet the ever increasing fees. Anifa is a very hardworking client whose dream is to become the leading cocoa producer in the region despite the challenges of having inadequate capital to buy more land for farming. Sometimes she has to buy from other farmers and this limits her profits. She intends to use the loan to buy cocoa to sell.
