This is 41-year-old Fudia. She is single and has one child aged 15 years. She has no additional dependents, but does have two sales assistants who are paid by month.
In 2007, Fudia established her food and drinks business. She began her business as her own means of getting revenue. Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 1,500,000 Le (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of Le 6,000,000. Fudia requires a loan in order to buy cooking utensils and some soft drinks. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 1,000,000. In the future, she hope to expand her restaurant as she has more customers now and hopes to realize more profit. She thanks you for your support.
