Doris, 32, is married and has one child, age 6. She has two additional dependents who live with her for schooling. In 2007, Doris established her grocery business. She began her business because after she left school, there was no employment for her. Working seven days a week and 13 hours a day, she earns about Le 1200000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Doris requires a loan in order to buy more drinks in a very large quantity for resale. She would use the remaining money on transportation. In the future, Doris plans to become an international businesswoman and provide her children with quality education. She thanks you for your support.
