This is 33-year-old Sarah. She is married and has three children aged 14, 9, and 7. In 2005, Sarah established her foodstuffs business. She began her business because her mother introduced her to it. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,112,000 every month from this business.

Sarah would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000. She wants a loan to help her buy Maggi, groundnut oil, and tinned tomatoes in large quantities. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 220,000. In the future, Sarah plans to get a new Victor motorbike and to help her children with their school fees. She thanks you for your support.
