She was motivated to begin this activity by her family and her husband, who is a systems engineer, and who told her that if she wanted to have a business that maD. her happy she should have a cyber cafe because they bring in good earnings.

Her greatest wish is that with this business she will be able to take care of herself and her family, and the loan will help her to keep it in good condition and keep her customers happy with the service she provides.
