Hawa U.'s story

This is 36-year-old Hawa. She is married, and has five children aged 17, 14, 11, three, and a five-month-old baby. Three of her children go to school. In 2003, Hawa established her clothing business. She began her business because she was born in a family where education is of no importance. Her parents were traders; she grew up with the same idea and helping in the family business. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 618,000 every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Hawa requires a loan in order to purchase clothing for kids and adults to sell to people in nearby villages. In the future, Hawa plans to develop her business and her family's status. Competition is her major challenge. In order to beat down competitors, she requires larger capital that will enable her to buy more goods. The loan will help her a lot in improving her business.

She thanks you for your support.
