This is 35-year-old Memuna. She is married, and has 4 children aged 17 yrs, 12 yrs, 9 yrs and 6 yrs. In 1998, Memuna established her food stuff business. While she was with her mother, Memuna became interested in business because her mother was a small-scale trader. When she got married she decided to start her own business to help her husband support their family. Working 6 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 900,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000. Memuna requires a loan in order to buy maggi, onions and rice for her business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 350,000. In the future, Memuna plans to educate her children to university level. Memunatu is honest and hardworking. She thanks you for your support.
