Meet 30-year-old Hannah from Moriba town Bo, Southern area. She is married with two children, 6 years and 10 years old. Her children are currently attending school.
In 2006, Hannah established her retail business. Her husband is a teacher, but his income is not enough to take care of the home. Hannah began her business because she wants to create income to support the family. She works at the business ten hours per day and six days per week. She says her business is doing well because her business is the only retail business within the community.
Hannah requires a loan in order to buy more soft drinks, pure water, and cigarettes. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business. In the future, Hannah plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
