This is 47 year-old Baindu. She is married and has 5 children ages 20,17,15,11 and 8 years old. She has 3 additional dependents who live with her because they are her family members from the provinces where educational facilities are poor.
In 1999, Baindu established her restaurant business. She began her business after the war as a means of generating income for their livelihood. Working 7 days a week and 8 hours a day, she earns about 1,216,400 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Baindu needs a new loan to help her buy rice and other ingredients in large quantities. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 242,880 SLL. In the future, Baindu plans to get another restaurant. She thanks you for your support.
