Business plan 
Margret has a retail shop located in Buziranjovu and she sells sodas, beers, sugar, maize flour, rice, eggs, cooking oil, and paraffin among others. She buys her shop items from Namaiba and sells to the people in her locality. For the farming, she always plants cassava, sweet potatoes for commercial but this time around, she wants to plant onions and cabbages. She well understands how to farm both crops therefore; she expects to get better harvests. What has encouraged her to borrow is the low capital levels to work independently without the support of the loan.
