This is 28-year-old Fatmata. She is married and has 2 children aged 5 and 14. She has two additional dependents, who live with her because they are her husband’s relatives. In the year 2000, Fatmata established her men’s shoes and ladies' slippers business. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 2,771,000 SLL every month from this business. She needs a loan of 4,500,000 SLL.
Fatmata has a very good loan repayment history. She now requires a new loan to help her buy more business stock. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 800,000 SLL. She thanks you for your support.
