Malvina's story

Malvina D. is married and has three kids. She lives with her family in Obuasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana. She is 37 years old. She runs a clothing shop and has been selling jeans, blouses and skirts, women's slippers and dressing bags for the past seven years.



Malvina is constrained by insufficient funds to run the business. She needs this loan to inject more working capital into the business to scale up her business progress. She believes the loan will help her to have resources to purchase good quality and large quantity to upgrade her inventory. She says she would be grateful for your assistance.
