This is 39-year-old Kuma from Moriba town Southern area in Bo. She is married with two children between the ages of 15 years and 23 years. Her children are currently going to school. She also has two additional dependants at home.
Kuma runs a palm oil business; she sells palm oil and ginger. She works at the business every day, 10 hours per day. The transporting of goods is a very big problem because of the poor road network.
Kuma has requested a loan in order to buy more palm oil and beans for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to expand her business to a higher level. She appreciates your support.
