Betty K. is a 40 years old mother of three children. Her children are between the ages of 8-18. Two are in high school while the youngest is in primary school. Betty is a hardworking business woman who has been selling poultry feeds in Jinja town for a period of 15 years. She has created employment opportunities for three people. Because of increased customer demands, she is requesting this loan to replenish her supplies of maize brand flour and fish for her factory.
Betty’s dream is to acquire a larger machine that will enable her produce feeds in greater quantities. With this in place, she will be assured of seeing her children through school successfully and providing them with a modern new residence.
