This is 27-year-old Marie from Moriba town in the southern area in Bo. She is single with three children between the ages of three and eight. One of her children is currently attending school. For the past four years, Marie has been running a food stand in a busy market area where she sells onions, Maggie, salt, and cooking seasonings. Marie works 12 hours every day and her business is her only income. Her biggest business challenge is the lack of capital.
Marie is requesting a loan to buy more onions, Maggie, salt, and cooking seasonings. The extra income from her loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her living standards. In the future, Marie plans to expand her business and build a house for her family. She appreciates your support.
