Although the kiosk is small according to her, the business is moving and booming. “I have been managing the little loan that I borrowed from LAPO Microfinance to sustain my business," she said. She acquired the skill over 3 years and she has been in this business since the year 2000. She is 34 years old and she is married with 4 children. She has been a leader in a lending group for the past 5 years.
