Aurelia is grateful for your cooperation in her previous loan which helped her to invest in her clothing business.

Aurelia is requesting this loan to make an improvement to her home as she lacks a staircase to reach her upstairs rooms. She currently has wooden stairs but they are in a bad state of repair and she is worried that there might be an accident. For this reason she is requesting a loan to buy materials (cement, sand and rods) and to pay the person who will carry out the improvement.

Aurelia would like to build her stairs from cement so that they last longer and are safer for her family. She has a business selling clothing and footwear. She plans to use the profits from her business to repay her loan.
