Sapia Group's story

Emma is a 28-year-old single mother of one child. She is determined to provide her child with a good education. She realizes that this will not be an easy task unless she has a good repository of savings. Thus, she started a used clothing business of her own. This will act as an additional source of income and will help her save for her personal needs and child welfare.

Emma cannot start her business without funds. Hence, she seeks a loan. She is joined by three other members in seeking a loan, and together they need a loan a total of SLL 4,000,000 to purchase the materials for their respective businesses. Emma is shown on the right of the picture. They have come together because they are all finding it hard to meet their household expenses with their current household income.
