This is 33 year-old Martha. She is married, and has 2 children, aged 5 and 8. She has 2 additional dependents, who live with her to help with the house chores. In 2009, Martha established her drinks and recharge cards business. She began the business to help her husband with running the affairs of the home and to meet her personal needs. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Martha requires a loan in order to buy additional drinks, provisions and recharge cards. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 367,037. In the future, Martha plans to improve on the sale of provisions. She thinks the loan can increase her stock, thus making more profits. She thanks you for your support.
