This is 30 year-old Makotor. She is married and has children ages 18, 15, 11 and 6 years. In 2000, Makotor established her commercial ladies dress, shoes, and bodies business. She began her business because she wanted to assist her husband with domestic problems.
Her business is located in the city center and her main customers are ladies. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,000,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Makotor requires a loan in order to buy ladies shoes and bodies’ skirts. She hopes that this loan will help increase her profit by approximately 500,000 SLL.
In the future, Makotor plans to open an outlet and deploy her younger brother there. She thanks you for your support.
