Dama, 51, lives with her children. She sells charcoal from her home. She’s been in this business for many years and has gained much experience in sales, which has allowed her to improve her financial gains. She’s well-known and has gained a large clientele so far. And because she’s so dedicated to her work, she’s always fighting to reach her goals.

Dama knows that by putting in much effort and loving her job, she’ll attain the success she so desires. She needs to stock up her business but she does not have enough working capital to do so. She is therefore asking for a loan to buy more sacks of charcoal for sale.
