Mary's story

Mary is a hardworking single woman. She runs a cereals business to help her sustain herself. Rice is in high demand at her location and that is what she normally sells.

She would like to take care of her stock levels and is humbly requesting a loan that will enable her to stock her business.

She has promised to use her profits to pay back her loan and grow her business.
