A loan of $1,450 helps to purchase billiard tables, cue balls, and disco lights.


Liku's story

Liku considers herself blessed, as she was able to use some of the funds to start a canteen business selling basic food items.

Through this business, she has helped support the children to attend higher education.

Having people always roam near the canteen, she decided to expand the canteen by opening a game center. This game center will have a billiard table. Anyone who wants to play has to pay.

Being confident that this will attract many customers, Liku desires a loan to achieve this goal.

The loan will be used to purchase billiard tables.

Being aware of how business runs, Liku will be pleased to venture into this new trade.


This loan is special because:

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