This is 42 year-old Dora. She is married, and has 3 children ages 7, 12 and 15. She has 1 additional dependent, who lives with her to help with the house chores.
In 2007, Dora established her patient drugs business. She began her business after graduating from nursing school to be self reliant. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,423,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Dora requires a new loan in order to improve the shop to a full drugs store. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 469,590. In the future, Dora plans to expand to a drugs store; the loan can increase the stock and maximize the profit. She thanks you for your support.
