Business plan 
Noeline has been farming with her husband for 20 years. At the beginning her husband would sell the food items and not give her money to support herself. That’s when she opted to start on her own. As she speaks she has gardens of beans and bananas. She needs capital to help her buy enough fertilizers and pay for laborers to help her weed such that they are strengthened to give her better harvests which are free from disease. From the anticipated profits, She wants to take her elder child in boarding school because he has out grown the class and other uneducated friends in the village mock at him each time, she does not want him to drop out of school before completing studies. Her cows also provide milk that helps her to earn income and balanced diet.
Personal situation 
Noelina is a trader of cows. After school she got married and was engaged in farming. A sister of hers who was engaged in trading cows encouraged her to join the same business. In the year 2012, she sold farm crops and joined the trade. She says this loan will be used to buy more cows to wholesale.
