Mrs. Arame is a young merchant who lives about 17 km from the main city. She is divorced with one child, and currently lives with her parents. Arame has been buying and selling cosmetic products for over 10 years. Her workdays run from 9 AM until 7 PM. She will use the loan to buy hair extensions and other items used in hairstyling. She helps her parents with the daily expenses and pays for her child’s tuition. With the support of the credit union, she would like to bolster her working capital and open a shop to sell beauty products.
