Joanne's story

Joanne is 46 years of age and manages a retail shop business. She is from the village of Jambitanger in Wosera Gawi District. Joanne has nine children, all of whom are above the age of five.

She sells groceries and sundries at her shop. Joanne has demonstrated discipline and careful management of her cash flow, which has allowed her to remain in operation for the past four years. She signed up to participate in the Cacao Program and the Women In Agriculture Program so that she could start a new venture, which she hopes will turn into something big in the future.

Joanne is seeking the assistance of a loan so that she can maintain her shop. She will use the funds to buy additional goods.
