Jaliat wants a loan of 2,000,000 shillings to buy more beans, ground nuts, and maize. These products are currently in season. Jaliat wants to buy the items when the prices are still low and sell them at a much higher price after the season ends. This will put her in a position to realize higher returns from her business. The income from her business will be used to build a permanent house for the family and pay the children's school fees.
Jaliat's major business challenge is bad weather. She would like the lender to give her flexible terms of repayment, especially if it is a bad growing season.
