Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth used her previous loan to buy more shop items like sugar, salt, rice, soap and eggs to sell. She still deals in a retail shop of general merchandise, which she supplements with crop farming of cassava, maize and sugar cane, with an aim of empowering herself economically and supporting her only two children because they are still in school.

She greatly hopes to construct rentals on her plot, although she faces challenges of bad debtors in her business and high purchase costs including the long distance moved to get shop items.

She intends to use this loan to buy more high-demand items like soft drinks, sugar, soap, rice, cooking oil and salt to sell.
