She gets her income by selling food stuffs, which she uses to pay school fees and take care of other household necessities. Her previous loan was used to buy more food stuffs to sell, however she now wants to buy building materials to complete her house which is at roofing stage. It may not be enough, but she believes that with more loans and some savings she will be able to accumulate enough money to complete the construction. She is very hard working and shrewd despite her status as a single mother.
