Rossina's story

Rossina is a 50-year-old lady who is a farmer and a single mother of 4 children. She lives with 4 grandchildren, who are minors, in her own house, and does not carry out any role in the community.

With the loan amount, she intends to purchase a motor pump for helping her on her machamba [small farm]. This is her fifth loan; and with the previous loans, she invested in the same activity.

Her dreams are to have another plot of land in order to diversify her crops, and to have a stable life.
