This is 39-year-old Nancy. She is married and has two children, aged 15 and 12 years.
In 2001, Nancy established her commercial batteries torchlight business. She began her business because she wanted to fight poverty and to be self-reliant. Working six days a week and eight hours a day, she earns about SLL 700,000 every month from this business.
Nancy would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Nancy requires a loan in order to buy enough batteries and torchlights since she now has more customers. Nancy plans to rent a shop in the future. She thanks you for your support.
