Mwanalima prepares and sells such food items as chapati (flatbread), cooked beans, and rice to earn an income. She started this enterprise about four years ago. The business, due to her considerable effort, is doing very well.
Mwanalima and her husband have seven children, all of whom are still enrolled in school, and she is dedicating her efforts toward securing their education and advancing their future. Thanks to her hard work, she is ensuring the children's schooling and supporting the family's needs. She wishes to continue working and investing in her business so that she can have the means to continue helping her children. She adds that through her labors, she also helps two other families by providing them with work.
Mwanalima is soliciting this loan for use in buying merchandise for her stand, including wheat flour, maize flour, rice, and cooking oil. She also wishes to invest in purchasing tables and chairs.
She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving, since it will be of so much help.
