Sarah, 28, has worked from a young age to sell home products, such as plates, mugs, and utensils. Her earnings contribute to the household expenses. She began working with a small capital from her husband; thanks to her determination, she has established a well-stocked business. She works every day, selling her merchandise at the market, where she has a small space. Her medium-term goal is to set up a store to sell her products, and to add clothing to what she offers for sale.
Currently she wants to expand her stock for the holiday season, so she is requesting a loan to buy stock, which will include utensils and other household items. This way, she will have a wide variety for her customers to choose from.
Her biggest desire is to become a successful micro-entrepreneur, able to give her family a better quality of life.
