This is 32-year-old Yainkain. She is single and has one child aged 3 who is not going to school. She has no additional dependents who live with her.
In 2004, Yainkain established her cosmetology business. She started doing this work first after she graduated with a diploma in cosmetology. Working 7 days a week and 6 to 7 hours a day, she earns about Le 500,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000.
Yainkain requires a loan in order to improve her business by buying more stock of hairdressing products for her clients. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits to approximately Le 800,000. In the future, Yainkain intends to continue to educate her child from this business and to improve her salon into a training center for young girls and hope to be a great business woman. She is thanking you for your support.
