Umriniso's story

Umriniso is receiving a loan to expand her business. She is a pensioner and it is very difficult to find a job at her age. The children are all grown and have their own families who also need help, this is why Umriniso would herself like to find a way to survive and to help her children. She keeps several sheep in her home. Previously she had cows, but because Umriniso is elderly it was hard for her to raise large horned livestock. She decided to raise sheep. Umriniso also sells wool from the sheep and earns a small income from this.

Umriniso is saving money for her grandson's wedding. She would like to buy a dowry for her grandson. But for now she does not have enough money because she is trying to grow her sheep business.

Umriniso would like to use the loan to buy several sheep and hopes that her plans are realized.
