This is 31-year-old Hawa. She is married and has one child who is 12.
In 2010, Hawa established her textiles business. She began her business after her husband gave her money to be used for domestic purposes. But, she diverted it to a business, which was appreciated by her husband; he even decided to encourage her more.
Working seven days a week and eight hours a day, she earns about Le 700,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of Le 5,000,000, so she can buy 50 suits of Africana dress @ Le 100,000.
She hopes this loan will increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 500,000. In the future, Hawa plans to become an international business woman. She thanks you for your support.
