A loan of $1,150 helped a member to buy food items for her restaurant.

Good Starter Development Group's story

Rose, a married woman with four children and a dependent, operates a restaurant in a fairly busy trading centre where she works six hours a day. Her main customers are passersby, especially market goers; she also does small-scale farming, a venture that she started in 1996.

Rose will use her portion of the loan to buy food items such as plantain, rice, and posho for the restaurant. The profits will be used to finance her children's necessities and school fees. A very hardworking woman, she hopes to build a house of her own in the future.
