Business plan 
Agnes is a farmer with 5 pigs, 2 cows, 8 local chicken, 3 acres of maize, bananas, cassava and many more. With the earnings she bought a solar panel which is used at her home for lighting and to charge phones in her village which does not have power. Each day, she charges not less than 6 phones. Customers with phones also need airtime to communicate so she decided to introduce it and this is doing well for her business so far. She wants to purchase another solar panel to support the one she has because it’s getting weaker. This will help her charge all phones completely because she cannot charge all of them due to low power. In the future she will expand to open another phone charging kiosk in the neighboring village and be wealthy.
Personal situation 
Agnes was taken to live with her sister at the age of three. Unfortunately her sister passed away and she was brought back to her parents. Since her father had many children they all did not get a chance to study including Agnes. Agnes lives with six grand children and she educates four of them. She is rearing animals so as to help her grand children in future.
