Ithungu is a 36-year-old married woman with four children living in Kasese, Uganda.

She is a farmer who mainly grows maize, but also runs a bar since farming is seasonal. Unpredictable weather and inadequate capital affect her business growth, while her desire is to venture into mechanized agriculture.

Good mother that she is, she desires to educate her children up to the University.

Ithungu is requesting a loan to buy farm inputs such as fertilizer, and also to pay for labor.
