Terla Vadeza's story

Terla is 32 years old, a single mother of one son, and is a kind woman who is very dedicated to her work. The only obstacle she faces is the health of her son who had complications at birth and needs to have constant treatments. Terla works selling groceries and stationery. She also sells shoes, boots, and sandals. She began buying pigs with some money she was given, and using the earnings, started buying sandals and shoes of different styles. The business began ten years ago and she still dedicates herself to the same work. The work schedule is from 5:00 am to 5:00 pm. The only disadvantage is the time that she invests in the business is time she cannot devote to her son. The loan that Terla seeks is needed to invest in merchandise like: sandals, and shoes for men and lotions. With the help of this loan she will be able to stock her business and this will help her to increase her sales and earn more in order to buy medicine for her son. Terla's goal is to improve the condition of her business and enlarge the store. This is her second line of credit with FAMA and has always made her payments on time.
