A loan helped to buy more shears for making curtains.

Ann's story

Ann is a young single mother who is just 27 years old. She is blessed with a young daughter who is 4.5 years old. To support her, Ann runs a business sewing and selling curtains for a living. She is humbly requesting a loan that will enable her to buy more shears for a living. Her business is growing, and she desires to open another shop selling the same in the future. Ann has promised to use her profits to pay back her loan. Her dream is to grow her business into more branches and educate her children.
