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


A loan helped to purchase more clothes to use in her sewing business in order to resell them and to buy more meat to sell.


Annonciatha's story

Annonciatha is 39 years old. She is a married woman with four children. She lives happily with her husband in the east of the country.

Annonciatha is a hardworking woman and while she is in her sewing workshop, her husband runs the butcher business. She owns two business: selling different clothes such as sheets and trousers and selling meat to the community. This is her tenth year operating these businesses and she has two employees to help her.

Lack of enough capital prevents Annonciatha from reaching the target of improving her business. That is why she has requested a loan to purchase more clothes to use in her sewing business in order to resell them and to buy more meat to sell. With the profits, she will be able to meet all her basic needs, to educate her children without any problem, and to expand her business. People are saying that this woman is an example in the community where she lives. Also, she is trying to encourage families to be together in order to attain a better life.

Annonciatha thanks you for your support.
