Lassie's story

This is 47 year-old Lassie. She is married and has five children ages 4, 7, 9, 12 and 16. In 2005, Lassie established her textile and suitcase business. She began her business because she wanted to help her husband improve their home from the profit generated from her sales. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,200,000 every month. She would like a loan of Le 4,000,000 to add more stock to the business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 800,000. In the future, Lassie plans to educate her children and buy land to build a house. She wants to purchase stock from Sierra Leone's neighboring country, Guinea, to make more profit by selling wholesale to other traders. She is very hard working and dedicated and thanks you for your support.
