This is 41-year-old Isha. She is single, has one child and one additional dependent, whom she adopted. In 2003, Isha established her used items business, selling items such as foam mattresses, bicycles and chairs. She began this business with the hope of getting enough money to support her family. She opens her business six days a week and eleven hours a day. She is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 SLL in order to make advance payment for an expected shipment from the USA. In the future, Isha plans to make fixed deposit savings for her children. She thanks you for your support.
