This is 46-year-old Nancy. She is married and has 3 children, aged 24, 19, and 15. She has 1 additional dependent who is her Mother. In 1998, Nancy established her business selling cosmetics, suitcases, Coleman products and DVD players. She began her business because she wants to independently provide for some of her basic needs. Working 6 days a week and 9 hours a day, she earns about Le 850,000 every month from this business. Nancy would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. She has already received and successfully repaid a previous loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy cosmetics, DVD player and Coleman products. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. In the future, Nancy plans to own a house in Kenema and to give her children a quality education. She thanks you for your support.
