Business plan 
Betty says that she buys most of her food from the nearby villages of Kipayo, Kiyanja and sometimes she also gets it from her garden thus saving her some money that she would have spent buying it all. Betty says that now days the dry spell has affected most of the farmers and the food is very little in the gardens thus those who have it sell it very expensively and that is why she wants to take out a loan such that she can be able to buy in bulk and be able to sustain her customers with constant supply of food. She says this will help her gain more profits to finally renovate her own house
Personal situation 
Betty says that she grew up with her mother and she did not know her father since her mother never talked about him and no one was allowed to ask about him so since her mother was not well off, she dropped out of school in her primary two. Betty later stayed at home to help out her mother in the garden and then she started helping out her mother with selling the food and when her mother passed away of recent, she took over the whole business.
