Winrose's story

Winrose has four children and lives in Sotik, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential with numerous small farms and also vast agricultural enterprises. She practices mixed dairy and crop farming.

Filled with determination to better her family's conditions while not being deterred by her age, Winrose wants to start a new business in her village. She identified a business opportunity in her area and is able to assemble the resources necessary to set up that business. As she was selling milk in her local market, she realized that there was no grocery store in her region and wants to open one. Winrose has looked for good suppliers, and she requested a loan, which she will use to buy fruits and vegetables.

Winrose is skilled in business and has good customer service skills; these abilities will enable her to excel in her business. She is confident of future profits. With the new business, she will now be able to pay for her children's tuition fees and give them a decent life. She is very full of expectations and hopes for this loan, now that she has repaid all her previous loans.
