This is 39 year-old Kai. She is married and has two children, ages 15 and 18. In 2001, Kai established her business selling slippers and sandals. She began her business to engage herself and generate revenue to be of help to her husband and family. Kai works six days a week, eight hours a day, and she earns about 1,000,000 SLL each month.
Kai is requesting a 5,000,000 SLL loan to buy foam slippers and sandals. She hopes that her loan will improve her business considerably. In the future, Kai plans to rent a shop and sell wholesale items to her customers. She thanks you for your support.
