Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is a 36-year-old mother who lives in extreme poverty and can hardly afford three meals a day for her children. Elizabeth practices dairy and organic farming, and she is full of dreams and aspirations in her life. Through organic farming, she is able to avoid the problems associated with fertilizers. She is the key breadwinner in her household. Because of her immense knowledge of farming, she commands a lot of respect from other farmers in her village. Her primary sources of income have been milk, eggs, and crops.

Even though Elizabeth has been earning money through farming, she realized that she could increase her income by selling cereals in her local market. The market for cereals is promising in her region, and thus she is sure that she will make great strides. She is requesting a loan to buy cereals.

Elizabeth intends to buy different varieties of cereals such as maize, sorghum, rice, wheat, barley, and millet to sell in the local market. The market for cereals is never a problem because the demand is always high, and she plans to take advantage of this. Because of her good customer skills, Elizabeth is sure that she will be able to make great profits. You can help her support her children’s education through the profits she will earn from cereal trading.
