Nenita S. is a 40-year-old mother of five. Her husband is her partner in operating their vegetable farm. The couple sometimes buys and resells their neighbor’s vegetables as well. They market some of the harvest in the nearby villages, but sell most of it on Sunday, which is market day in their town.

She applied for a loan as additional capital for her vegetable farm, to buy fertilizer and other materials needed to maintain the different vegetables they are growing. She wants to expand the farm to earn more money for the family. She hopes that in the future, they could plant a variety of high value crops to increase their production.
She dreams of sending her children, who are now in elementary school, to college, and hopes to build a house in the village that is more accessible to the school her children attend.
