Seray, age 43, established her retail business in 1997. She lives in Moribatown Bo. She and her husband have raised three children, who are now between the ages of 15 and 26 years old. Two of her children are currently attending school.
Seray began her business because her husband, an agriculturist, was not able to bring in enough of an income to support the home. Her business allows her to help support the family. She works at her business 10 hours per day, six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is transportation.
Seray is requesting a loan in order to buy general stock like soap, assorted drinks, and pure water. She is confident that the extra income from this loan will allow her to better support her family.
In the future, Seray plans to expand her business to a higher level.
She thanks you for your support.
