Meet 39-year-old Maseray from Kulanda town in the Southern area of Bo. She is married to a businessman and blessed with four children between the ages of 5 and 23 years. Three are currently attending school. In 1999, Maseray established a business selling plastic slippers. She began her business in order to generate income to educate her children. She works at the business six days per week. Her major business challenge is the cost of transportation from the place where she purchases her goods to her town in Bo.
Maseray requires a loan in order to buy more plastic slippers. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to send one of her children to university and start a savings account. In the future, Maseray plans to open a big slipper store. She thanks you for your support.
