Hawa Balla's story

This is 29 year-old Hawa. She is married, and has 2 children aged 3 and 7. She has 1 additional dependent, who lives with her to assist her younger sister with her schooling. In 2008, Hawa established her provision and drinks business. She began her business to help her husband provide a livelihood for their family.

Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Hawa requires a new loan in order to buy more provisions and drinks for her business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 250,000. In the future, Hawa plans to open a bigger so that she can have enough space to display more of her business items. She thanks you for your support.
