This is 34-year-old Kaday. She is married and has three children aged one, five and ten. In 2011, Kaday established her clothing, mobile phone and caps business. She began her business because she wants to be self-reliant after dropping out of school. Her business is located in city center and her main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 2,317,000 every month from this business. She is requesting a loan of Le 5,000,000. Kaday has already received and successfully repaid five loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional blouses, jeans and silk trousers. She hopes that this loan will improve her stock and increase her profits. In the future, Kaday plans to improve her inventory of mobile phones, and hopes to be able to open outlets throughout the town with the profit gained. She thanks you for your support.
