Patricia is 49 years old, married, and has four children. She has a grocery business in Emali, where she sells tomatoes, onions, and other fruits and vegetables. She has been in the business for three years, and it has been profitable.

This will be Patricia's fourth loan term, and she plans to use the amount to buy more stock of onions, tomatoes, and carrots to sell. Since they are in high demand, she anticipates making more profits, which she will use to build a permanent store for selling her grocery items.

Patricia hopes to expand her business by supplying some of her items, like tomatoes and onions, to hotels and restaurants. This will increase her income and allow her to improve the living standards of her family.
