This is 38-year-old Veronica. She is married and has 3 children aged 16, 11 and 3 years. She has 1 additional dependent.
In 2002, Veronica established her provisions and drinks business. She began her business because she was unable to further her education and needed a source of living. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 900,000 every month from this business.
Veronica would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. She requires this loan in order to buy more provisions wholesale at a reduced rate. In the future, Veronica plans to expand her business and educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
