Business plan 
Margret does some bit of farming where she cultivates bananas, eggplants and cabbages though her plot if rather small compared to what she wants to plant that is why she wants to take out a loan and be able to lease some land to expand her cultivation and thus earn more profits that she will use to carter for her family’s needs.She also does stone quarrying as another source of income and feels that using the loan, she will be able to hire part time laborers to dig for her the stones so as to increase her final output.
Personal situation 
Magret was born in seta Nazigo village and she says that she wasn’t able to get any formal education because her parents were too poor to afford it. She later got married and her husband brought her to Nakosi village where she started cultivating food crops in plenty and she also started selling off the excess foods.
