Marian has a grocery business in Emali town where she sells tomatoes, potatoes, cereals and fruits. She has been in the business for the past seven years and it has been profitable. She is 36 years old and a single mother to one child who is in primary school.

This being her first loan term, she plans to use the amount to add stock of grocery items such as tomatoes, onions, carrots and potatoes. She also plans to buy more stock of fruits like mangoes and oranges. This will enable her to have enough stock to meet the demands of her customers.

She will use the generated profits to pay school fees for her child. Marian hopes to grow her grocery business by selling a wider variety of grocery items and also move to a permanent store which she intends to acquire in the future.
