Dorathy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more rice, oil, flour, and pepper to sell.
Dorathy is 48 years old, married, and has four children. Three of her children are schooling and all do live at home. Dorathy attended school until 4th grade. Due to insufficient capital from her husband, she runs a business which sells rice, oil, flour, and pepper on a table in the general market. After receiving financial help from her brother, she started to sell. She was able to learn this trade from her husband. Dorathy uses a motor car to transport supplies to her business site. She has operated this business for 21 years and she considers herself a hardworking business woman. To expand her business, Dorathy requested a loan to enable her to purchase more rice, oil, flour, and pepper to sell to her customers. She likes her business because it helps her to meet the day-to-day needs for her family. In the future, Dorathy plans to build houses and send her children to good schools. She wishes to say thanks.
