Lilian is requesting a loan to buy thread and cloth to use in her dressmaking workshop. She will also use part of her loan to pay for farm labor and buy seedlings, manure, and fertilizer. Lilian thinks that her dress making business will succeed because of her longevity as a seamstress and high demand. Her business will help the community because dresses will be available at cheap prices. There will also be more food items on her farm. Lilian will use the profit from her loan to provide medical care for her family, pay school fees, and expand her dressmaking workshop.
