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

A loan helped to purchase a hair dryer and a hair straightening iron for her salon shop.

Danet's story

Danet is 31 years old and is a widowed woman living with her father. She is a hairdresser. Her father works as a soldier. She has been in this hairdressing business for ten years.

She will use this loan to purchase a hair dryer and an iron to straighten hair in her salon. This can help to improve her business and change her family's living standards. She hopes she is able to expand her business and build a new and bigger house.

Her major challenges are more competitors and the fluctuation in the price of goods.
