Mercy is married and has one child. Her husband works as a driver. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.

Mercy wants to use her loan to purchase a greater quantity of ingredients to make her Millet porridge, thus increasing her current inventory levels. As a result, this will allow her to sell greater quantities of her tasty porridge. In the long term, Mercy plans to re-invest the future profits back into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
