This is 38 year old Hajaratu. She is married, and has 2 children aged 28 and 24 years. She has 3 additional dependents. In 2009, Hajaratu established her restaurant business. She began her business because she wants to generate enough to allow her family to live an average life in society. Working 6 days a week and 7 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,300,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000 to buy more drinks and other food items. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. She thanks you for your support.
