Mary is a 35-year-old married woman with six children and two dependents whom she is taking care of after the death of their father. Mary deals in cattle fattening projects in her region. She has managed to help her family financially by providing it with the basic necessities.

Along side cattle fattening, she also deals in milk sales, and the husband deals in second-hand clothes to bring additional income to the family because all her children attend school. From milk sales, she has managed to pay the tuition for the two dependents.

Mary is applying for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 to buy more cows for fattening, as it will enable her to cater for the family's basic necessities of life.
Her major challenge is inadequate pastures to feed her cows, especially in the dry season whereby even some of her animals die due to persistent drought.

Her dream is to own a large farm in the region with at least 500 cows. Mary is hard working and honest.
