This is 52-year-old Susan. She is married and has three children ages 25, 20, and 18 years. She has two nieces who live with her and she takes care of them.
In 2009, Susan established her provision and drinks business. She began her business to earn a living. Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 1,000,000 Sierra Leone Leones (SLL) every month from this business.
Susan would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Susan requires the loan in order to buy provisions worth 3,000,000 SLL. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 450,000 SLL. In the future, Susan plans to expand the shop and employ an assistant sale person. Dedicated and hardworking, she thanks you for your support.
