Mary's story

This is 44-year-old Mary. She is divorced and has two children, aged 12 and 15. She has two additional dependents, who live with her to assist a sister. In 2004 Mary established her business, selling cooking utensils, shirts, suit cases, jeans, and shoes. She began her business out of the need to be self-reliant, after being devastated by the war.

Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 1,900,000 SLL every month from her business. She would like a loan in the amount of 4,500,000 SLL. Mary requires a new loan in order to add more cooking utensils to her inventory.

Mary plans to expand the shop with the sale of soft drinks, and open a shop at the center of town, in the future. The loan can increase the profit that can be used for expansion. Mary thanks you for your support.
