In addition to that, Teopista also has a small retail shop which she wants to improve by adding part of the loan to it. She expects her business profitability to increase since whatever they will ask for will be available.

She has been an agricultural farmer for her life time, she says that, due to poverty, there is nothing she does and became a success due to low capabilities but after getting the loan, she hopes to improve.
