Benadatte is a 33-year-old single mother of four children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. She is a tea farmer alongside being a primary teacher, where she is paid very little salary. Benadatte solely takes full responsibility for the three orphans of her biological brother in addition to her four children. She has a challenge of the price fluctuation of tea and inadequate capital to buy farm inputs (fertilizers, etc.).
She is very committed towards educating her children up to the university level and also desires to expand her plantation. Benadatte is requesting a loan to buy manure and pay workers who are helping her out in her tea plantation.
