This is Musu. She is 41, married, and has one child, aged 22. She has one additional dependent who lives with her and works as a sales assistant. In 2008, Musu established her used carpets and chairs business. She began her business to help her husband in the running of the home. Her business is located at the city center. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about 1,000,000 SLL every month.
Musu would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL to buy more carpets and chairs. She hopes that this loan will help her to increase her monthly profits. In the future, Musu plans to expand her business so that she can become a leading supplier of used items. She thanks you for your support.
