This is 30-year-old Daisy. She is married and has four children aged 15, 12, 10 and 7. She has two additional dependents, who live with her while attending school.
In 2011, Daisy established her provisions and cosmetics business. She began her business just for self-empowerment. Her business is located at the heart of town, and her main customers are women. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 650,000 every month from this business.
Daisy would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Daisy requires a loan in order to buy more provisions for her shop. She hopes that this loan will increase her capital base. In the future, Daisy plans to further increase her stock level. She appreciates the gesture she is receiving from Kiva. She thanks you for your support.
