Asilika's story

Asilika has always wanted to run her own business so that she can be financially stable. She was able to make her dreams a reality when she opened her own canteen with her savings. Since opening this business in her home, it has remained operational.

Asilika seeks a loan to expand her business by purchasing a wider variety of inventory for her canteen. She will purchase canned foods, toiletries, and snacks to add to her inventory.

Asilika hopes that the lenders will have confidence in her entrepreneurial skills.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
