Business plan 
Dorothy is a farmer off all fresh food and cash crops like banana plantation a garden of tomatoes, cabbages, eggplants etc. She is already harvesting for the previous season and she has gained experience in farming. The customers like her fresh food items from her garden because she takes enough time for her crops which results into good yields. Currently she rears pigs and wants to invest part of the loan in piggery to buy feeds as well as construct a modernized sty for them instead of the one she has which is very substandard. With the above she expects to plant a bigger portion to enable her get good harvest so as to earn high income to enable her meet the basic needs of her grandmother and child and hopefully return to school.
