Jodia's story

Jodia is 39 years old. She is in a common-law marriage. She is a merchant and the mother of two children, ages 15 and 14, who are both in school. She lives in her own home.

This is her first loan, which will be used to buy a variety of products such as rice, oil, eggs, detergent, onions, and other foods to resell at her shop.

Her greatest dream is to grow her business in order to increase her family income.
