Yanor, 50, is married, and has four children aged 28, 25, 20 and 14 years. In 1996 Yanor started selling fish so as to raise money to support her children. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about 900,000 SLL every month.

Yanor would like a 3,000,000 SLL loan through ARD to increase her stock of fish and so her income as well. In the future she plans to build a house.

Yanor thanks you for your support.
