Margaret's story

Margaret is happily married and is blessed with a beautiful family. She runs a quarry business for her family's upkeep though the major challenge she faces in her business is lack of enough capital to expand her business. Her business does provide employment to young men in her area who benefit from her business and she is proud to have an impact in society no matter how small. Margaret is humbly requesting for a loan that will enable her to construct a toilet and a bathroom and has promised to use her profits from her business to pay back her loan. Her dream is to own a construction company in the future.
