but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more fabrics such as ankara, dashiki, and others for selling as well as repair her faulty sewing machine.
Agnes 47, is happily married and has been blessed with 2 children who are 18 and 13 years old. She runs a tailoring business and she enjoys it very much because it enables her to meet various basic expenses such as school fees and rent. Her husband is a livestock trader while she is a professional tailor who loves to interact with her customers as well since it makes her job more fulfilling. Her business has helped create business for local suppliers of fabrics who make a living by supplying to her. She is requesting a loan to help her repair her machine and also buy more fabric to sell. Agnes will use her profits to pay back the loan. This loan will go a long way in uplifting her business and consequently her family’s living standards. Her dream is to grow her business so that she may be able to give her children the highest level of education to enable them be more prosperous in their lives.
