Elizabeth S. is a civil servant working in the health sector. She is a single parent of one child. She owns a shop on the outskirts of Makeni where she sells drinks and provisions. She employs a shop assistant and normally supervises the business in the evening. She has secured funds from her personal savings to set up the business but not enough. As a result, she is seeking a loan to buy additional stock so that she can meet the needs of her customers. She hopes to use the proceeds of the loan to educate her child and to build a house and expand her business for her retirement.
