This is 47-year-old Adama. She is married and has children aged 21 and 19 years. In 2005, Adama established her cement business. She began her business because she needed to assist her husband in bringing up their children in terms of providng livelihood and paying for their education. Her husband gave her an amount of money to establish her own business.
Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 6,000,000. Adama has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy more bags of cement for her business. In the future, Adama plans to complete building her store and help in paying for her children’s education. She thanks you for your support.
