Anna is a stove entrepreneur and a member of a group of women entrepreneurs who encourage and support one another's businesses. She started her business in 2007, and she hopes to acquire a loan within the next six months to grow her enterprise.
Why she was selected for the program: Anna successfully repaid a loan in the past, and she used her increased profit to provide for her grandchildren's school fees. "All those things made me to grow a bit higher because of the training and the money."
