She works as travelling firewood salesperson and works from 8am to 6pm. She also has a business selling fruit and vegetables, such as tomatoes, carrots, onions, apples, bananas, oranges and grapes. She sells the fruit and vegetables at the market. These businesses are the member's way of supporting her children. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell the fruit, vegetables and firewood. The member is requesting this loan so she can buy wholesale fruit and vegetables like apples, mandarins, grapes and bananas as well as onions, carrots and tomatoes.
