Mrs. N. is 54 years old, widowed, and has two children, one of whom is married, while the other one is single and still lives at home. Mrs. N. earns income selling groceries at a local market. She sells a variety of products, including vegetables, various food ingredients, shampoo, perfume, and other home products.
The business is going well and provides the largest share of the family's income. With the growing demand for her goods, Mrs. N. would like to expand her business, and therefore needs a loan to purchase additional groceries for sale.
