Business plan 
Maria is a crop farmer and she specializes in growing maize and bananas. She has over 2.5acres of land where she carries out all that and she also has a stall at her home which she opens after working in her garden but her challenge is that of capital to buy fertilizers and herbicides since weeding is becoming hectic because of heavy rainfall that makes weeds grow faster than her crops and they out compete them. Maria also wants to restock her stall and that is why she wants to take out a loan in order to give her garden and stall a new look and attract customers which will increase her profits and develop her land.
Personal situation 
Maria was born in Bukule and she studied from Nakalanda upto primary six and she dropped out of school because she could not handle studies since she could over repeat classes. Maria went for tailoring course which she says it was also hard for her and she started business in order to earn a living.
