Grace's story

Grace (30 year-old-mom of 2 school-going children) lives in Maua, a town whose surroundings have vast agricultural potential and numerous small farms. Grace herself practices mixed dairy and crop farming.

Filled with determination to better her family's living conditions while not being deterred by her poor financial status, Grace wants to start a new business in her village. As she was selling milk in the local market, she realized that there was no grocery in her region and wants to open one. Grace has looked for and found good suppliers, and has now requested a loan that she will use to buy fruits and vegetables for resale.

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