Anonymous's story

Beatrice is 45 years old, widowed, and has two children. In 2006, she established her drinks business. She started the business to help her provide a livelihood for her children. Working six days a week and 13 hours a day, she earns about 600,000 SSL a month. Beatrice is requesting a loan for 3,000,000 SSL, which she will use to buy additional drinks such as soft drinks, beer, stout, and wine. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 200,000 SSL. In the future, she plans to open a restaurant which she will operate alongside her drinks business. She thanks you for your support.
