This is 56-year-old Rebecca from Calaba town. She is divorced with two children, and she also takes care of two other relatives. To earn a living, Rebecca runs a bar and restaurant store. She sells snack food, soft drink, beer, stout and pure water. She has been running this business for 15 years. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., six days per week.
Rebecca says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to run her business. Rebecca has requested a loan in order to buy more soft drinks, beer, stout and pure water. The extra income resulting from this loan will allow her to take proper care of her family. In the future, she plans to become a drinks distributor. She appreciates your support.
