This is 37-year-old Mary. She is married and has three children, age 15, 6 and 5 year.
In 2007, Mary established her drinks business. She began her business because she wanted to assist her husband in taking care of the children. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about SLL 600,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,500,000. Mary now requires this loan in order to buy different types of drinks to meet the needs of her customers. In the future, Mary plans to open more business outlets and build more houses. She is thanking you for your support.
