Agnes is 50-years-old. She is a widowed mother to four children. All her children are grown up and they live on their own, easing many burdens on her. Her husband died mysteriously but she never gave up her business. She works hard to provide for herself and her business. She prepares and bakes bread. She has done this business for thirty-five years now, in spite of the challenges she faces. It is with her bread business that she managed to care for her children to this level. She has customers who come to her to buy in bulk. Her only problem now has to do with adequate funds to buy raw materials to meet her demand. She requests loan support to remain in business. With the loan, she believes she can provide for her family and, most especially, her children’s education.
