This is 34-year-old Elizabeth. She is single and has two children ages 6 and 14. In 2010, Elizabeth established her food and drink business. The business started after she graduated from a technical vocational school to be self reliant. Her business is located in the outskirts and her main customers are adults.

Working seven days a week and 14 hours a day, she earns about 1,327,900 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000. SLL Elizabeth requires a loan in order to pay for additional drinks, rice and oil. She hopes that this loan will increase the stock and improve the business.

In the future, Elizabeth plans to expand the business to include provisions and toiletries and she also hopes to support her children's education. She thanks you for your support.
