Saira Tomasa's story

With the support from this loan, Saira plans to purchase food (dry grains, spices, meat, oil, etc.) and clothing (shirts, sandals, baby clothing, etc.) to support her two businesses, food preparation and sales and clothing sales. Saira leveraged the funds from her previous loan to support her food preparation and sales business. With that investment, she was able to strengthen and expand her business and improve her overall financial situation. She has recently expanded her business endeavors to include clothing and shoe sales in hopes of generating additional income.
