Oliver's story

Oliver is a 33-year-old married woman with four children who all go to school. Oliver operates a retail shop on a busy street. She works seven days a week, 12 hours a day and has been six years in business. She also owns rentals and does farming for additional income.

Oliver began the business to support her family and wants a loan to buy rice, sugar, jerry cans and soap to sell. Educating her children and business expansion are her dreams, only to be challenged by limited capital.
