Nyanja Ya Matope 3 Group's story

Ellen is a married woman aged 36. She engages in Irish potato farming together with her husband. Ellen has 4 children who rely on her for financial support.

Ellen requires the loan to grow Irish potatoes for sale.

Although, Ellen engages in farming together with her husband, this type of farming is labor intensive hence a need for extra hands. She will use the money to pay for labor, buy fertilizer and buy chemicals.

Ellen started this farming business some years ago with the aim of being economically independent.

Ellen hopes that in a couple of years she will be able to build a house and grow her capital.
