Selection-1 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy ingredients for her restaurant.

Selection-1 Group's story

Ngu, 37, standing second from the left, has a small family of four with a hard-working husband and two school-going children. Breaking the usual norm in Burmese culture, both of the parents in this family are bread-winners. Ngu opened up her own small restaurant 7 years ago and has been working alongside her husband, who is a manager at a small cooking oil shop.

Ngu has been frustrated for some time as she cannot hit her desired profit mark as most of her money is spent on paying back her high loan interests.

“I am going to use this low interest rate loan money to invest more into the restaurant business i.e. to buy more food materials and probably expand”, Ngu exclaims.
