This is 42 year old Tity. She is married and has 4 children ages 20,18, 7 and 3 years old. In 2008 Tity established her charcoal business. She began her business because she wants to assist her husband in taking care of the home.

Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,800,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of SLL 4,000,000. She needs this new loan in order to buy bags of charcoal. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 300,000. In the future, Tity plans to educate her children up to university level. She thanks you for your support.
