A loan of $1,000 helped purchase sacks of upland rice directly from farmers.

Amina's story

Mrs. Amina B. operates a retail grocery shop that sells a variety of fast moving consumer goods such as toiletries, cereals, and soft drinks, among others. Due to the increased demand for rice in the market and its projected rise in price, Amina is using this loan to purchase sacks of upland rice directly from farmers, at a fair price, that will enable her realize a considerable amount of profit on each sack.

Her business, over the last 12 years, has enabled her to support her husband in the caring of their two children, aged 2 & 6 years old. Her dream is to integrate agricultural activities with her retail business, whereby she would cultivate and then sell her own produce (cereals) in the grocery shop.
