This is 32-year-old Musu. She is married and has 2 children aged 3 and 7 years old. In 2005, Musu established her blouse, slippers, jewelry and baby clothing business. She started the business to help her husband, who is also in business, to maintain their home and also to meet her personal needs. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,215,000 every month from this business.
She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Musu requires a loan in order to buy panties, napkins, Pampers and ladies' slippers. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 303,750. In the future, Musu plans to expand her business to the outskirts of town. She thanks you for your support.
