Z. Mastura is 28 years old. She is married and she has two children. A friend invited her to help sell clothing at the marketplace and she jumped at the offer. This is how she learned the skills needed to manage a store in the marketplace. She decided to open her own business. She put some money together and bought women's tights, socks and kerchiefs and started her business three years ago with these items. Mastura has been able to help her husband with living expenses and to provide for her young 2 year old daughter.
However, Mastura thinks it is important to buy new merchandise so she can stock a wider variety of items, which in turn will attract more customers. Mastura is requesting a loan of $300 which will be paid back in installments over the course of 12 months. With this loan, Mastura will be able to buy the merchandise she needs to increase her income. Thanks to your help, she will be better able to support her family.
