Rahel is a 32-year-old, hardworking, married woman with five children living in Kamwenge, Uganda. She deals in livestock as her main source of income, though she earns an extra income from agriculture. She started this business to earn a living and to take good care of her family. She has a challenge of seasonality, where she sometimes does not get customers (especially during the lent period). She hopes for educating her children and for owning a big farm with nice looking bulls.

She is requesting a loan to buy more bulls to sell.
