This is 39-year-old Fatmata. She is married, and has three children aged 18,14 and 11. In 1990, Fatmata established her palm-oil and vegetable oil business. She began her business because she wanted to meet her own domestic commitment by taking good care of her children and their welfare. Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,000,000 every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Fatmata requires a loan in order to buy palm oil and vegetable oil in large quantities. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 600,000. In the future, Fatmata plans to give her children the best education. She thanks you for your support.
