Fati S., a 48-year-old woman, is married and has five children. She runs a grocery shop in her neighborhood and sells items like rice, sugar, vegetable oil, bottled water, canned foods, peanuts, evaporated milk, etc. She needs the loan to enable her to restock her shop with more bags of rice and sugar, cartons of evaporated milk, cartons of vegetable oil and roasted groundnuts, etc. to scale up sales.
She is hopeful that she would be able to raise enough income to sponsor her kids' education. She would be thankful for that support; she is a member of the group called "Hakuri" group Trust, meaning Patience's. Members in this group agree to guarantee and support one another to repay the loan.
