A loan of $1,150 helped to buy more sets of pans, dishes, and plastic buckets for her stall.


Musu's story

This is 42-year-old Musu. She is married and has four children, aged 7, 13, 20, and 25 years. She has one additional dependent, who lives with her to help with the house chores. In 1999, Musu established her cooking utensils business. She began her business just to be self reliant and help the husband run the affairs of the home.

Her business is located at the city centre and her main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,900,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Musu requires a loan in order to buy sets of pans, dishes, and plastic buckets. She hopes that this loan will improve the stock and raise the profit.

In the future, Musu plans to educate her children to university level and continue to improve her business so that she can secure more revenue for the education of her children. She thanks you for your support and wishes you well.
