Ola's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to develop her business and buy more modern winter clothes for women and kids for winter season in order to improve her income.


Ola's story

Ola is 44, married, and her husband works for the government with low income. She has a small clothing business. She is a very kind woman and struggled a lot in her life to help her parents in the marriage preparation for her siblings. She worked really hard for her family since she was a young woman to help her father in household expenses, because he wasn't able to educate and marry her siblings. They have always been her only motive in life.

After her marriage, she turned again to her successful business and continues her work. She wants to ask for a loan to develop her business and buy more modern winter clothes for women and kids for winter season. This will improve her income and make her business a stable source of money to still help her parents and also her husband. She is not a greedy lady; all she wants is to see her family happy and comfortable.
