Judith started selling peanut butter at a roadside stand after she received her first loan in November 2016. Within a few weeks she had to move her stand as she did not have a license to sell on the road. She then started a home delivery business as her customers liked her product. She faced increased competition as more women in her area started making and selling peanut butter.
