Hana M. is a new member of the programme who just joined in the last month. This lady already has the skills needed for her agriculture business. She has an existing vegetable garden which earns her a living of about $100 per week. She has been unemployed for several months but now she realised that by expanding her vegetable garden she can earn more than the salary she used to get when she was employed. With a little loan of $300 she expects to earn an additional $100 per week.
