This is 32-year-old Finda. She is married and has one child, aged 4 years. In 2007, Finda established her suitcases, cow-kanda, bamako and ready-made clothes business. She began her business because she wanted to increase her income. Her business is located in the outskirts of town, and her main customers are women. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 600,000 Le (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Finda requires a loan in order to purchase more of her business items for resale. She hopes that this loan will support her to earn more profit. She thanks you for your support.
