Massa's story

This is 45-year-old Massa. She is divorced and has five children between the ages of 14 and 28. She has two additional dependents living with her to help an elder sister and assist in schooling.

In 2005, Massa established a general store, selling drinks, provisions, toiletries and cement. She began her business so she could be self-reliant after divorcing her husband. Her business is located in the city center and her main customers are all ages and sexes. Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,800,000 every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Massa has already received and successfully repaid five loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional inventory for her store. She hopes that this loan will improve her stocks. In the future, Massa plans to improve her business by opening another shop at the outskirts of town. She thanks you for your support.
