Caroline's story

Caroline comes from a humble background in a family of four. She is a hardworking single mother who diligently supports her family. At times she has to work long hours to meet her family’s basic needs but this does not discourage her as she enjoys interacting with her customers. She runs a general store and a beauty salon which is her source of livelihood for her and her family and enjoys this business as it brings her joy to interact with her customers on various levels. She values her customers very much since they bring her many referrals the more she creates a good rapport with them. She is seeking the loan to add stock of cosmetics to her business in order to increase her revenue.

Her intentions are to use her profits to clear her loan and improve her family’s living standard and her dream is to expand her business to be even more profitable in the future.
