This is Negena - one Group which consists of four female members. The group leader is Negena.

Negena is 35 and the mother of three children who are at school. She and her husband have a shared business. They buy fresh vegetables and fruits which Negena brings home. She cleans them all and packages them. Then, her husband sells them from his cart at a high price.

Negena needs the loan to hire a stall and purchase more vegetables to expand their shared business.

Torpeki wants to take a loan for her son’s business selling cosmetics. He wants to make his shop larger.

Geta wants to take a loan for her husband’s general store. He has to work hard to earn money for the payment of household expenses.
