This is 33 yr old Abibatu. She is married and has 2 children, aged 18 and 16yrs. In 1997, Abibatu established her Local Food Stuff business. She began her business because she wants to develop her family in a responsible manner by assisting her husband to solving some domestic problems. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about SLL 600,000 every month from this business.
Abibatu would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,0000. Abibatu requires a loan in order to buy more local food stuff for the store so that customers will be attended to when needed. In the future, Abibatu plans to assist her husband to build a house and to give a quality education to her children so that they can take care of her during her old age. She thanks you for your support.
