Marhabo A. is 53 years old, married and the loving mother of four children. She makes a living selling items in the local market. She started out 20 years ago with only a few products, but over the years her business has grown larger and more stable. Today, Marhabo sells fruits such as watermelons, melon and other produce in season. Her sons help with the business. In the market, Marhabo is well-known for being friendly and having low prices. This allows her business to generate considerable income for her family.

This is the time of year when demand for fruit is greatest. That's why Marhabo would like to expand her store by restocking it with new, fresh items to sell. To make this possible, she has applied for a loan of $950 which she will repay in nine months. She hopes this loan will raise her income so she can pay for her children’s university fees. With your help, this will be possible. Marhabo would like to thank everyone who supports her and her family
