This is Fatmata. She is single and has three children. In 2011, Fatmata established her medical service business. She began her business because she wants to render medical service to her community to reduce their suffering. Her business is located in a city center, and her main customers are people from the community. Working seven days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about SLL 8,493,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Fatmata requires a loan in order to buy pharmaceutical drugs, cough mixtures and IV drips. Fatmata plans to open up a community health center in the future. The loan will be used to further expand her pharmacy. She thanks you for your support.
