Faustina is 48 years old. She is married and the mother of five children. Three of her children are currently in school. She enjoys selling goods, a business which provides her with her daily income. She has been selling yams for four years now to support her family. She treks to farming communities to buy yams wholesale from the farmers. This saves her from having to deal with intermediaries who buy from the farmers and then resell the yams at a higher price. She wants to use the loan to buy yams in bulk in order to meet the daily demands of her customers, especially as Christmas approaches. She hopes to use part of the profit she earns to support her kids in school, and another part to expand her business. She would be grateful for your assistance.
