This is 50 year old Juliet. She is married, and has 4 children aged 31, 29, 24 and 20. She has 5 additional dependents who live with her because they are her nieces and nephews.
In 2009, Juliet established her drug store business. She began her business because she wanted to help with medications and to get more income. Working 6 days a week and 9 hours a day, she earns about Le 829,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000.
Juliet requires a loan in order to buy additional drugs. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 165,800. In the future, Juliet plans to get a clinic of her own and to educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
