Greetings!!! This is Coleen is from Bulawayo. She is 43 years old, and is married, with 2 children. The eldest is doing Advanced Level and the younger one Ordinary Level. The client operates a catering business. She works at designated places and services the surrounding industrial market. She has been doing this business for the past 15 years. Coleen is requesting for a loan of $2250, so that she can purchase more catering equipment, which includes, plates. spoons and forks since her market is growing, and she intends to open a small restaurant in the Central Business District. This will mean that she will be exposed to a wider market, which can boost her profits or income. With the income generated from this loan, Coleen will be able to pay school fees and buy food for her family, since she is not employed and relies on self help. It will also go a long way in enabling her to set up her restaurant which she plans to open after she finishes paying the current loan.
