Margret is a 38-year-old single mother with one child and two orphans who stay with her at home.

In order to look after her family, Margret grows bananas and Irish and sweet potatoes on a small scale for both commercial and home consumption. She is a hard working woman but is challenged by price fluctuations in the market.

Margret borrowed a loan of 700,000 UGX from the institution to pay last term's school fees for her daughter, who is in a nursing school. Now the daughter is about to take her exams for the second semester and she does not have money to pay for her. She has thus applied for a loan of 700,000 UGX to pay for the school fees.
