Emma's story

This is 30-year-old Emma. She is married, and has 4 children aged 10, 13, 16 and 19 years, who are all going to school. She has one additional dependent, who lives with her because she got her from the war.

In 2009, Emma established a business selling onions, maggie, mayonnaise, salt, butter, pop corn, baking powder, ketchup, flour etc. She began her business because she stopped going to school at Form I because her parents were poor. She later got a Teachers' Certificate (TC) and taught for 2 years but because of poor conditions of service she left teaching and started a business.

Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about 2,550,000 Leones (SLL) every month from this business. She would like a loan of 4,000,000 SLL. Emma has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy:

- moist Maggie (a soap product)
- sugar
- eggs
- vegetable oil
- flour
- shrimp Maggie

In the future, Emma plans to acquire a shop, provide a quality education for her children and become an international business woman. This loan will help to improve her business. The frequent increase in price of items is her main problem. She is a hardworking business woman. She thanks you for your support.
