Florence's story

This is 44-year-old Florence. She is married and has four children aged 27, 24, 18 and 15. Two of them are in school. She has one dependent, who lives with her because he is in school.

In 1991, Florence established her foodstuff business, selling bulgar, garri (dried cassava tuber) and corn flour. She began her business in order to augment her husband's effort and to enhance her independence. Working seven days a week, and 12 hours a day, she earns about 1,000,000 Leones (SLL) every month from this business.

Florence requires a loan in order to buy more bulgar, garri, and corn flour. She would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. In the future, Florence plans to complete the construction of her house, and to improve on the level of her stock. She thanks you for your support.
