This is 46-year-old Nanah. She is married with two children, ages 15 and 20. In 2005, Nanah established a Mega-Cola drinks and pure water business. She began her business after she lost her father and there was no one to pay for her schooling. Nanah's business is located in the outskirts of the city and her main customers are people of all classes. She works seven day a week, 10 hours a day and earns about 350,000 SLL each month.
Nanah is requesting a 4,000,000 SLL loan to purchase more crates of Mega-Cola and cartons of pure water to sell. In the future, she plans to build a shop on her own to stop paying rent. Nanah thanks you for your support.
