A loan of $1,350 helped to buy more gasoline for her business.


Deborah's story

Deborah is running a gas station in the area of New Kru Town where she lives. She has run this business for the past seven years and makes lots of profit since she is the only female who sells gasoline in her community. The profits are used for house rent, school fees, and to increase her savings. One of the problems she faces is the road condition and cost of transporting the product to her gas station. She started this business with ten gallons of gasoline in front of her yard as she lives close to the road. The money to start the business was given to her by her late father who was also selling gas. She is requesting a loan to buy more gasoline for her business. She has three children aged between 9 and 11, all of whom are in school and live at home. Deborah is 29 years old, and a high school graduate. Her plan is to expand her business by opening another branch. She sincerely thanks you in advance for your support.
