Business plan 
Nezia unlike most of the crop farmers who deal in food crops deals in cultivating Millet and sugar canes. Nezia says the millet and sugarcane business is quite profitable because the demand is equally high as most local brew makers and beer factories always use it in the process of making alcoholic drinks however the only challenge Nezia is facing at the moment is that of a weeds which compete with her crops yet they are growing so fast due to heavy rainfall and she is worried that is she does not act quickly by applying fertilizers and herbicides, the whole plantation may become stunted and thus she loses all her entire work for the season that is why she wants to take out a loan and buy fertilizers, herbicides and medicine for spraying her entire plantation and thus save her hard work for the entire season and gain profits that she will use to look after her grandchildren.
Personal situation 
Nezia was born in Mpaata Mawoto and its where she grew up. Nezia says she would have loved to get formal education but it was not possible at all since her father had over 4 wives with very many children and could not afford to educate any of them. Nezia later got married though the marriage did not last for long since the husband was not supportive when it came to family needs. Nazia later went back to her father’s home who gave her a piece of land that she cultivated and got some money off her harvest and thus the start of her business.
