36-year-old Betty N.'s entrepreneurial nature is what has put momentum into the success of her retail business over the course of the last five years in Wakitaka-Jinja. The financial and moral support of her husband, who actually began the shop, has been of paramount importance, too.

In her shop, she sells a variety of retail commodities, but priority is given to goods which are in high favor with many rank-and-file people around her neighborhood. These goods include sugar, soap, sodas, rice, beans, etc. She says the business generates about $378 a month.

Before all this came to fruition, Betty was a housewife. She and her husband are happily married and have four kids who all go to school. Betty is requesting this loan to purchase more retail commodities like salt, washing and bathing soap, plastics, etc. to resell. She envisions improved sales revenue prospects in the near future.
