Grace's story

This marks Grace's second borrowing to finance her business. She is grateful for loans which have seen her grow her business and employ one person in her community.

She has requested for more money to purchase sugar, loaves of bread, milk and cleaning detergents to meet the growing demand.

Her hope and dream for the future is to own several ventures, as retail shops and services.
