Aged about 37, Mrs. Afi A. is her husband’s second wife. She is responsible for three people and her main business is catering. She sells rice, beans and pasta. With limited means, she has to use credit to purchase her supplies from retailers, thus reducing her profit margin.

To avoid this unnecessary loss of profit, Mrs. A. is asking for a loan of $800. She will use these funds to purchase her supplies wholesale, allowing her to improve her turnover.
