Married with five children, Beatrice B. is a 36-year-old trader. She believes in hard work and dedication as the primary antidote to minimizing poverty, and for that matter, she is very serious with her business. Beatrice has been a retailer of eggs and maize for the past ten years and has since been very resourceful in aiding her family. She wants to use the loan to buy larger supplies of maize and eggs to serve her customers throughout the season, especially in the face of the current food crisis and increasing prices. She is a member of the trust group called Holy Trinity. In this group, members guarantee one another's reliability, serving as social collateral, to access and repay loans.
