Sosha is 29 years old and lives in the Paynesville area. She is single with a 2-year-old child. She is a high school graduate.
For four years she has been operating a shop where she sells soft drinks, stout, malta (a non-alcoholic, carbonated malt beverage), tissue, soap and others items. She started this business with two thousand U.S. dollars given to her by her son's father, and she learned this way of running a shop from her mother.
She enjoys her business because it helps her to save and have money to spend. She is requesting a loan to purchase more soft drinks, malta, tissue, soap, and many other items for her business. In the near future, she wants to attend university and send her child to school.
