This is 48-year-old Francess. She is married and has two children, aged 25 and 18.
In 2009, Francess established her drinks business. She began her business to assist her husband in the running of the home. Her business is located in the outskirts of the city, and her main customers are mixed. Working 7 days a week and 16 hours a day, she earns about Le 700,000 every month from this business.
Francess would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. She requires a loan in order to purchase more drinks for resale. She hopes that this loan will support her to increase her profit. With the proceeds of the business, she is determined to open another outlet, becoming a supplier of drinks (wholesale) to other retailers.
She thanks you for your support.
