Theresa is 55 years old, divorced, and has seven children. Currently, only one of the children is in school; the others have completed school. Theresa enjoys selling, and she has many years of experience serving customers. She has been selling maize and yam for 30 years to support her family. She treks to farming communities to buy her stock from the farmers. This saves her from buying from middlemen, who buy from the farmers and resell at higher price.

She plans to use the loan to buy maize and yams in bulk so she can meet the daily demands of her customers. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her children, who are ready to enter university this year.

Theresa is a member of a community group called Isaac Trust Group. In this group, members guarantee and support one another to repay their loans.
