Beatrice is a 55-year-old woman with eight children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. Her main business is maize growing. In addition, she operates a small food stall in the market which gives her additional income. Her ambition to better the lives of her children drove her to venture into these activities. She wants to expand her business to other areas, despite challenges of seasonal weather changes and low prices. Beatrice is requesting a loan to buy land to expand her farming activities.
