This is 42-year-old Musu. She is married and has four children, ages 6, 13, 17 and 25. She has three additional dependents who live with her to help with the house chores.
In 2009, Musu established her hairdressing business, which she started to help her husband who has retired from running the affairs of the house.
Working seven days a week and 13 hours a day, she earns about SLL 2,795,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Musu has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional hair, hair products and cosmetics.
She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 782,600. In the future, Musu plans to improve her salon. She thanks you for your support.
