Ophelia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more body cream, body spray, hand wash and hair grease.
Ophelia is 49 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and four children in the small community of SKD Gbargbo Town in Paynesville South. Her children are between the ages of six and 23 years and, while one of them stays with her at home, the other children are independent. Ophelia started out by selling cool water. Because she was determined and focused, she now has a table where she sells bath soap, body cream, body spray, hair grease, hand wash and many other items. The profit that she generates from the business will be used to pay back her loan, pay for house rent, food, school fees and to buy more goods to improve her business. With the loan given to her she will purchase more body cream, body spray, hand wash and hair grease to increase her sales. She hopes to have a big shop in the future.
