Pen's story

Pen is 57 years old and is a married woman with three children. She makes and sells rubber chairs. Her husband works as a construction worker. She has been running this business for one year. Insufficient capital is her major challenge.

She will use this loan to purchase a knife, paint, and old wheels for making her chairs to sell. Her goals are to get more income from this business and buy a truck to delivery her goods to sell at the market.
