This is 38 year old Regina. She is married and has 4 children, aged 21, 14, 13 and 10yrs. In 1995, Regina established her Palm Oil and Charcoal business. She began her business because she wanted to be self-reliant and, moreover, to assist her husband in taking care of the family. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 800,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. She requires a loan in order to buy more gallons of palm oil and more bags of coal to satisfiy the customers' requests. In the future, she plans to help her husband to build their own house and improve on the business. She thanks you for your support.
