Rebecca is a school bursar, but she also raises both poultry and pigs. She is the single mother of a university graduate, whom she has educated with her own, hard work. She began the business to earn additional income, and to be able to pay tuition for her son.

She would like to use this loan to buy chicken feed for her chickens. Her customers are mainly hotels. Her challenge in the business is the high price of feed, while the price she can command for her chickens remains the same.

Her dream is to finish construction of her home, so that she could have enough space to house even the relatives. She is a strong and hard-working woman, who has determined to change her standard of living and that of the people around her.

The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
