She is the owner of the business now after her parents gave it to her 7 years ago.
She learned by doing and always has her parents support.

This is the first time she is requesting a bank loan. With the 14.000MT loan she wants to buy products to improve her business. She learned about Hluvuku-Adsema from friends who are also clients.
She expects to pay the credit without problems to access new ones and fulfill her dream of building her own restaurant.
