Subira, 35 years old, is married and has four children, all of them in school. She works very hard to provide for her family.

For the past five years, she has been selling coconuts at retail from her home. Thanks to her experience, she currently has a lot of customers, which permits her to have good sales. She also knows where to go to get good coconuts at low prices in order to sell them later.

Subira is looking for a loan in order to buy more coconuts and thus face the season with a good inventory. In the future, she would like to save money to expand her business and to continue sending her children to school.
