Musu's story

This is 46 year-old Musu. She is married and has 3 children aged 22, 17 and 13. She has 2 additional dependents, who live with her because of their schooling. In 1987, Musu established a plastic and dishes business, which she began in order to enhance her independence. Her business is located at the heart of town and her main customers are both men and women. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 420,000 every month.

Musu has already received and successfully repaid 1 loan, and now requires a new loan of SLL 4,000,000 in order to buy plastic and rubber dishes. She hopes that this loan will help increase her capital base and lead to more merchandise for sale. In the future, Musu plans to own a house, educate her children, and seek more funds for expansion. She says thanks to Kiva, and appreciates the gesture she is receiving. She thanks you for your support.
