Rebecca is 22 years old and is married. Her sister passed away three years ago, and since then Rebecca has taken care of her sister's child. She has the responsibility of paying the child's tuition fees, even though she earns very little income from her business.

Rebecca and her husband started the business a year ago, as source of income after she had completed her studies from college. She started the business because she had no tuition to enable her to continue with her studies at university, and she could not find a job.

She hopes to expand her business into wholesale, so as to increase her income, and to be able to build a house for their future children.

Rebecca‘s major challenge is inadequate capital - which doesn’t enable her buy enough stock for her business. It is because of this that she wants a loan to boost up her business and help her to compete favorably in the market.

Her neighbours recommended her for being a hardworking, determined and supportive person in society at such a tender age.
