This is 34-year-old Regina. She is married and has two children, ages 7 and 5. In 2006, Regina established her clothing-material business. She began her business because she wanted to be self-reliant. Working six days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about 2,792,400 Sierra Leone leones (Le) every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000 in order to buy additional lace and cotton. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 418,860. In the future, Regina plans to help educate her children, expand her shop, and, if possible, build a house for her family. She thanks you for your support.
