This is 40-year-old Fatmata. She is married and has two children, aged 15 and 13 years. In 2005, Fatmata established her Patented Drugs business. She began her business, because she wants to assist her husband in taking care of the home. Her business is located in the city center, and her main customers are lactating mothers and pregnant women. Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, she earns about SLL 622,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more drugs for resale. She hopes that this loan will help her to increase the stock, and also the profit, of her store. In the future, Fatmata plans to expand in other places. She thanks you for your support.
