Florence prepares and sells plain rice with either tomato or bean sauce to school children. She also garnishes her dishes with vegetables like carrots, cabbage, cucumbers, etc to make them more appetizing. She is a married woman with two children. The children are in school now.

She wants to use her new loan to buy more bags of rice, beans, gallons of vegetable oil, and vegetables to expand her operation. She hopes to start saving to be able to pay for the children’s education.
