Margaret loves selling goods, the business through which she obtains a daily source of livelihood. She has been selling cassava for seven years to support her family. Cassava is one of the favorite staple foods that supply carbohydrate components in people's diets. It is mostly used in preparation of local dishes like “fufu” and “banku”.

Margaret takes delivery of goods from farmers who provide her with direct supply. This enables her to avoid middlemen who would buy from the farmers and resell to her at higher prices. With this loan, she wants to purchase cassava in bulk to serve her customers. She hopes to use part of her profit to pay for her kids'n schooling. Margaret is a member of a community group called "Maranatha Trust Group". In this group, members guarantee and support one another to repay their loans.
