Christine has owned her plumbing parts business for 5 years, allowing her to support her six children single handedly. Christine employs one other person and keeps the shop open from 7am until 6pm every day.
This is Christine's first loan which she will use to buy new spare parts, rather than used parts, to sell at her shop. With the additional profits she hopes to reap after the loan, Christine would like to hire additional employees and to grow her business.
