Esi says that the price of ingredients is increasing which is making it difficult to buy more raw materials from the market. Esi needs the loan to buy more bags of flour, sugar, margarine, milk and firewood. She said your assistance would be much appreciated. Esi belongs to a group called St. Peters.
