Zenia is an enterprising woman and a small businesswoman in her community. She has had a small shop for 6 years where she sells products derived from milk such as butter, curd cheese and cheese and she also sells drinks and new clothing. Zenia is a single mother and thanks to this business she has made progress in life. She has a lot of customers visiting her business because the quality of the products she sells is very good and her prices are really low.

She is asking for the backing of the loan in order to buy cheese, butter, fresh cheese and eggs to stock her business. In order to set this business up Zenia had to ask for loans from suppliers which affected the price of her stock and the profit was very small. She dreams of having a better stocked shop and having new products so she can attend to her customers better and be able to sell a bigger variety.
