Her husband is a driver. Elizabeth has been working as a baker for close to 15 years. Her income is used to help her husband pay the utility bills and their children’s school fees.
She plans on using her loan to purchase an increased quantity of flour and sugar to make her bread, thus allowing her to meet rising customers’ demands. She hopes to use the profits from her enterprise to fulfill her dream of buying a bread stand, which would help her sell from a fixed location in the future.
