Amalia is 30 years old, married, and the mother of two beautiful children. Her children are in school in the community where they live. Amalia works hard to support her husband in taking care of the family. She is a trader and trades in goods like scarves, and local slippers for women and children.

She also sells drugs like Viagra and other drugs for those who have low sperm counts. She said her business is doing well as most men patronize the sale of the drugs. She takes delivery of stock from importers and retails them to her loyal customers through selling in the community and its surrounding villages. Amalia has been in business for the last eight years to support her children. She is requesting the loan to buy bulk supply of stock so that she can increase her profits. She saves part of her profits in a bank for future eventualities and hopes to pay back the loan in time. She would be grateful for your support.
