Wuyah's story

This is 30-year-old Wuyah. She is married and has three children, aged 14, 11, and seven. In 2009, Wuyah established her plastic slippers business. She began her business just to enable her provide for her domestic needs. Her business is located at city centre, and her main customers are both men and women. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 700,000 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Wuyah has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy plastic slippers. She hopes that this loan will increase her income level. In the future, Wuyah still nurtures the plan of renting a shop and to educate her kids. She appreciates the gesture she is receiving from kiva. She thanks you for your support.
