Ruth's story

This is 26-year-old Ruth. She is married and has two children, ages 5 and 3 years, and one is a school-going child. She has two additional dependents, who live with her to assist her in domestic work, and also to be fostered.

In 2009, Ruth established her business, after having completed her tertiary education. She decided to engage in a business, the experience of which she had gotten from her mother, and which she believed would be profitable. Her mother gave her the capital to start a business selling groundnuts. The business has since grown to include selling pure water and soft drinks. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,805,000 every month from this business.

Ruth would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. She requires a loan in order to buy more pure water and soft drinks to resell. Ruth plans to educate her children, open a shop, build a house, and become an international business woman, in the future. The loan will improve the business. Inadequate capital, and slow sales in the rainy season, are her major challenges. She is a hard-working and trustworthy businesswoman. She thanks you for your support.
