Her business is clothing, she has been in this activity for some years which is why her customers are faithful to her.

With her loan she plans to buy fabrics worth 136500f and 200000f to cover the education costs for her son, who is a student.

She also plans to pay for her family's needs, her children's school fees, their food and their medical costs.
