Asinzo is a 40-year-old businesswoman who lives in Juba. She is married and has two children, ages 20 and 12. Both of them go to school.
Asinzo runs a food store business and has been in the business for six years. She has one employee.
Asinzo heard about Finance Sudan through fellow clients and outreach and promotion done by the loan officers. She is taking a loan of 1,500 SDG to purchase more food items like Safa milk (a milk brand name), Pepsi drinks, water, Blue Band products (a grocery brand name), and many other items. In addition to this business, Asinzo has her houses for rent as another source of income.
In five years time, Asinzo hopes for increments in her business size and to have a good store.
Her major challenges include wholesalers’ price differences in the market day to day.
Asinzo says that she is happy for Finance Sudan’s support, especially for women, for helping them with capital to start up a small-scale business.
