This is 37-year-old Victoria. She is married and has one child aged 19. She has no additional dependents. In 2007, Victoria established her provisions business. She began her business in order to have a source of revenue and to be able to assist her husband with domestic problems. Working six days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,800,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Victoria requires a loan in order to buy SLL 5,000,000 worth of provisions. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 1,200,000. In the future, Victoria plans to be a leading supplier of provisions. She thanks you for your support.
