This is 56 year-old Florence. She is married and has 3 children aged 25, 23 and 21. In 2009, Florence established her provisions business. She began her business because she wants to be independent. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,303,200 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. She requires a loan in order to buy cartons of tin milk, butter, jam, magarine, sugar, etc. for her business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 260,640. In the future, Florence plans to help her husband build a house for their family and to give quality educate to their children. She thanks you for your support.
