This is 31 year-old Christiana. She is married, and has 3 children, aged 3, 7 and 12. She has 1 additional dependent who lives with her, a younger sister, to help with her schooling. In 1998, Christiana established her plastic slippers business. She started the business after dropping out of school, to help the husband with running the home. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Christiana requires a loan in order to buy additional plastic slippers. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 534,480. In the future, Christiana plans to expand the business to a shop, make more profit and take care of her children's education. She thanks you for your support.
