Betty's story

Betty is the mother of lovely children. She is a woman with a big heart, and her tenderness and her love for farming exceed all limits. She is a wise farmer who is respected by her neighbours and fellow farmers as a mentor. Betty’s main source of income is from dairy farming, vegetables, and cereal trading. She is very hardworking and has defied all odds as a farmer for the last 6 years. Her primary sources of income are poultry, vegetables, crops and animal farming.

Betty is content with the farming way of life. She is a very enterprising woman, and although she never had a formal education or formal employment, she has always worked hard on her farm and has been able to feed her family.

The Litein area has favourable conditions for tea farming, so Betty is seeking a loan to buy seeds to start tea farming. Because of the good roads, climate and transportation network, Betty is sure that she will reap maximum profits and be able to grow her tea farming business. Please help Betty so that her tea farming can flourish!
