Ada's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more bags of charcoal to re-sell.
This is 48-year-old Ada. She is a widow and has one child aged 18. In 1993, Ada established her charcoal business. She began her business after her husband died. Her business is located in the outskirts of town and her main customers are women. Working seven days a week and eight hours a day, she earns about Le 950,000 every month from this business. Ada would like a loan in the amount of Le3,000,000. She requires it in order to buy more bags of charcoal to re-sell. In the future, Ada plans to educate her son up to university level. She thanks you for your support.
