This is 32 year-old Hassanatu B.. She is married, and has 1 child who is 12 years old. In 2006, Hassanatu established her assorted food stuff business. She began her business because she wants to generate income and support her child. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 300,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Hassanatu requires a loan in order to buy more food items for her business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 250,000. In the future, Hassanatu plans to educate her children and establish a savings account. She thanks you for your support.
