Mary M., a 33 year old woman, is married with three kids, and a very hard working trader. She enjoys selling cosmetics products, which has been her major source of livelihood for the past four years. She says selling cosmetics is lucrative and her experience in the market has enabled her to gain many loyal customers.
At the moment, she does not have a shop so she sells at the community market. Mary believes that with the loan, she will possess sufficient resources to purchase more cosmetics goods and jewelries. She is a member of the St. John Group, where members provide assistance to one another to repay the loan.
