Violet is a 47-year-old married woman with seven children who lives in Kasese, Uganda. She is a farmer who grows bananas for commercial purposes. With the proceeds, she has been able to buy more land to expand her plantation.
As it is every responsible mother's dream, Violet desires to educate her children up to the university level and see them graduate with degrees. She says that her plantation is not sufficient to supply her increasing customers. That is why she has to buy from other farmers. Violet intends to use the loan to buy bananas to sell.
