This is 36 year old Titty. She is married and has 2 children aged 16 and 3 years. In 2006, she established her drinks and cosmetics business, which she began because she wants to develop herself and her family. Her business is located in the outskirts of town and her main customers are women and men. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 700,000 every month. Titty requires a loan of SLL 3,000,000 in order to purchase soft drinks, pure drinking water, perming cream, and weaving hair for resale. She hopes that this loan, used properly, will help her to develop her business. In the future, Titty plans to become an international business woman, build her own house and give a quality education to her children. She thanks you for your support.
