A loan of $475 helps to support her to put up a shade, increase her stock and pay school fees.


Maiyu's story

Maiyu, 36, is a hardworking single mother of three children. She diligently supports all her children and provides them with all the motherly love that she can.

Maiyu manages to provide for her family by running a general store. Though the business is profitable and she enjoys the profit she makes, which enables her to bring up her family, it is not without its challenges. The biggest challenge she faces at the moment is that she sells her products in the open air where she and her goods are exposed to the elements.

Due to this she is kindly requesting a loan that will help her to set up a shade that will make her stall even more attractive to her customers. She has planned to use the profits to continue supporting her family and also orphaned children from her local church, whom she has also been supporting. Part of those profits will also help her to pay back her loan on time.

Her dream is to ensure that she educates her children fully in the future.
