Lucy's story

Lucy, 41, is happily married and the mother of two beautiful children. Besides caring for her family with support from her husband, they also take care of extended family members such as their parents and siblings.

Lucy is a seamstress by profession and she enjoys her business very much. She has honed her skills over the years and has become an expert in her line of work. Customers love her attention to detail and often give her repeat business. Among the items she makes are school uniforms, which she distributes to many shops. The challenge she faces is when she has no money to add stock, which results in low business. However when she has capital her business does well.

Lucy is humbly requesting a loan that will enable her to buy more materials for making additional uniforms. She has promised to pay back her loan with the help of the profits she makes from her business. This will be her fifth loan.

Her dream is that her children will be well educated and upstanding members of society, as she teaches them the value of hard work and earning an honest living.
