Lydia is married, and lives with her husband. She sells gari (milled and fried cassava) in the local market. She has been doing so for the past 8 years. She travels to nearby villages in order to purchase more products and sell them to earn income. Lydia would like a loan to ensure that her prices remain stable. Farmers are about to enter the lean season, which would lead to a high price of cassava. Lydia believes that this loan would allow her to support her family and expand her business.

Lydia is a member of a group called Queens. Members support one another in repaying loans.
