Amelia's story

Amelia is a 51-year-old entrepreneur who has been buying, selling and doing business with producers since the year 2000. She lives with her four children in Sussundenga.

She dreams of investing and providing a good education for her children, especially for one of her daughters who shows interest in learning her mother’s trade. Amelia loves to work and help her peers. She helps the orphans and elderly people of her community, people who have no one left to take care of them.

Amelia decided to be a crop aggregator to help producers in her community sell their products at a fair price on the local market. She also supplies food to hospitals and for families in her community.

She is now facing a problem with transportation. As her clients increase, so does the demand for the crops. Amelia finds that her car is not capable of carrying the necessary amounts and is now looking for a truck to help her distribute. With the loan, Amelia will purchase a small truck that will make sure Amelia keeps helping the numerous people involved in her business as well as provide nutrition for families.

For the future, Amelia plans to expand her activities by installing a milling machine, which will not only benefit her community but the ones around it as well.
