This is 40 year-old Fudia. She is single, and has 1 child, aged 14. She has 1 additional dependent, who lives with her because she helps to support her for schooling. In 2008, Fudia established her restaurant when she saw that many businesses nearby had employees who were leaving the area to buy food or drink. Working 6 days a week and 6 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,100,000 every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000 to renovate her restaurant, buy more chairs for her customers, drinks and some food items. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 400,000. In the future, Fudia plans to expand the restaurant and educate her child to university level. She thanks you for your support.
