Jolly Ann's story

Jolly Ann is a 41-year-old woman with three school-aged children. Her husband has a job that helps manage the economy of their household.

She has raised and sold livestock like cows for more than ten years now.

This time, she has requested a loan to purchase an additional cow. In this way, she can raise more cows through selective breeding. With more livestock, she can improve her earnings and set aside money for other business ventures and finance the schooling of her children.

In the future, Jolly Ann is aiming to have a healthy family and a sustainable livelihood.
