Agnes, 32, is married with four children between the ages of 2 and 13. She owns a small local bar selling locally produced beer called “sorghum beer". She buys it in five jerry-cans of 20 litres each and sells it to the local people. Besides selling the local beer, she also roasts goat meat which the local people enjoy, especially in the evenings after a day of hard work on their farms.

Agnes has requested a loan to expand her business. She will buy other equipment for her beer garden such as tables, cups and bottles and increase her beer stocks for the Christmas season. She hopes to continue to grow her business and will invest any profit back into her business.
