Diana is 23 years old. She is an enterprising young woman who has a business providing telephone booth services and cell phone top ups. She started her business 5 years ago to support her child as she is a single mother. Diana lives in a peri-urban area. She has her own telephone booth business where she offers calls to cell phones and local calls. She also offers a service providing top-ups for cell phones and selling telephone accessories. She currently works in her premises from 8.00am to 7.00pm. Diana continues to be a hard-working woman and she knows that she is very capable of expanding her business. For this reason, she would like to use this loan to buy top-up cards for cell phones, cell phone accessories, etc. One of her goals is to own her own Internet café within 5 years.
