This is 37-year-old Anne. She is married and has four children aged 18, 12, 9, and 3 years. In 2001, Anne established her pharmacy business. She began her business because of low salary income. Her business is located in the outskirts and her main customers are people of the general community. Working seven days a week and 14 hours a day, she earns about SLL 600,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. Anne requires a loan in order to buy more drugs for resale. She hopes that this loan will support her. In the future, Anne plans to become a drugstore owner and open a pharmacy in a different business outlet. She thanks you for your support.
