This is 46-year-old Jeneba. She is married and has four children, ages 23, 18,16 and 13 years old. In 1996, Jeneba established her imported food sales business. She began her business just to enable her contribution to the running of the home, and that is major source of survival. Working seven days a week and one hour a day, she earns about Le 1,350,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Jeneba has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy vegetables oil, onions, Irish potato, jumbo Maggie, sugar and tomatoes. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 210,000. In the future, Jeneba plans to develop her business into a shop, give quality education to her children and to own a house. She thanks you for your support.
