This is 56-year-old Fatu K.. She is married and has three children who are all independent and are employed. She has three dependents, who are children of relatives that live in a village where educational facilities are very poor. They live with her instead so they can get a good education.
In 1980, Fatu established her clothing business. She began her business because she needed to assist her husband to give adequate support to their children. She opens her business six days a week for nine hours a day.
She would like a loan in the amount of 4,500,000 Sierra Leonean Leones (SLL). Fatu requires a loan in order to buy poplin, lace, bail wax, cotton and khaki materials. As with her own children, Fatu wishes to see her dependants through their education. She thanks you for your support.
