Lydia's story

Lydia is a hardworking single mother who is 40 years old. She has two beautiful children and one niece whom she supports equally. She sells paints to contractors, painters and building owners for a living. She loves to see a good paint job on new and renovated houses which gives her so much satisfaction. The business also enables her to interact with many people which she loves to do. The business has enabled her to grow and diversify her streams of income. With her last loan, she was able to start a tailoring business by buying a sewing machine. This time around, she is kindly requesting a loan that will enable her to increase her stock of paints to boost her business. She has proposed to pay back her loan using the profits she makes. Through her business she has managed to create employment for the youth who deliver her goods to the customers. Her dream is to grow her business to a large company which her kids can continue to run.
