This is 32-year-old O'yah B.. She is married, and has two children, aged 6 and 4. She has three additional dependents who live with her because they are her nieces and nephews.
In 2009, O'yah established her sport shoe, T-shirt and vest business. She began her business because she wants to get a means of caring for her family. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about SLL 2,600,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,500,000 in order to expand her product offerings. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 730,000. She thanks you for your support.
