Zainab is married and has two children who are 8 and 15 years old. In 2004, Zainab established her food vending business. She began her business to generate income, maximize her profit and educate her children. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about Le 1,200,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000 to purchase more goods in bulk, including rice, onions and tomatoes. Zainab plans to travel to neighboring countries to purchase these goods at a lower cost.
She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 800,000. In the future, Zainab plans to generate more income and educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
