Business plan 
Dorah farms, tomatoes, yams, cassava, sweet potatoes and maize for commercial and home consumption. She hires labor to clear the grassland, buy fertilizers and pesticides. . She says that the only challenge is the un predictable weather so this is why she plans to lease land which is swampy and water logged where she can work all year long. She expects the loan to help expand her farming from small scale to large scale and obviously get more output that will help build in her piece of land and settle with her family.
