Susanna's story

Susanna, 45, is a hardworking mother who has been selling donuts at the nearby community school for the past seven years to assist her husband with the expenses of the home. She has two children who are 20 and 23 and have completed their high school education.

She makes profit when she sells; with the profit, she buys more flour and cooking oil to increase her sales. A difficulty she faces is low sales during the raining season. She is requesting a loan to purchase more flour, sugar and cooking oil for the business. Her plan for the future is to give her children a better education.
