This is 46-year-old Neneh from Torkpoi town Bo. She is married with 6 children between the ages of 6 and 25. Four of her children are going to school.
Neneh runs a retail business. She sells pure water and soft drinks. She has been running this business for 7 years. She works at the business 12 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is slow purchasing power of customers and lack of enough capital to expand her business.
Neneh has requested a loan in order to purchase more pure water and assorted drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and educate her children. In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She appreciates your support.
