A loan of $500 helped refurbish site and buy videos for her business.


Mwanamkuu's story

Mwanamkuu is glad about her first loan. She was able to buy compact discs with recorded videos and other data material which she displayed as entertainment to her customers. As a result, she obtained enough income to repay her loan on time. She plans to repair seats and buy more video discs for the business. She is therefore applying for a loan of 41,850 to refurbish the venue and buy more videos to display. She looks forward to installing a play station and also to broadcast the premier league matches which are loved by the locals.
