This is 40-year-old Theresa. She is married and has 3 children aged 24, 22, and 18 years. In 1999, Theresa established her drink-selling business. She began her business because she wanted to become self-employed. Her business is located in the outskirts of town, and her main customers are general community people. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,000,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Theresa requires a loan in order to buy more drinks. She hopes that this loan will support her to increase her profit. In the future, Theresa plans to become a wholesaler and distributor. She thanks you for your support.
