Osooso is a 51 year old mother of 4, who has been doing this chips business for 6 years now. She can not increase produce because with her income it is not enough to provide for their family needs and to keep the business running. Now she needs a loan of $800 to expand the area of her production, and to buy more tools to provide fast production. She aims to improve her business to increase her income to satisfy her family and also to keep her business running.
