This is 34-year-old Mabel K.. She is single and has 3 children, aged 5, 13 and 15. In 2003, Mabel established her drinks and provisions business. When she dropped out of school, she started this business to help her provide a livelihood for her children. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 600,000 every month from this business.
Mabel would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000 to buy more drinks and provisions such as tea, milk, ovaltine, sugar, sardine, etc. for her business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 100,000. She thanks you for your support.
