This is 40-year-old Fudia. She is married and has one child, who is 14 years old. She has one additional dependent, who lives with her by adoption. In 2008, Fudia established her restaurant and bar business. She began her business just after she completed her diploma in food and brewing. Working six days a week and six hours a day, she earns about Le1, 200,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000. Fudia has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy 15 crates of Star beer at Le.56,000, 10 crates of Heineken beer at Le.120,000, 15 crates of Becks beer at Le.120, 000, and the balance will be used to renovate the restaurant and seating accommodations. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 960,000. In the future, Fudia plans to expand the restaurant. She is very hard working and accommodating. She thanks you for your support.
