How has MicroLoan helped you?
Having the loans has helped me care for my family. Children are sent to the school for study and also at least 3 meals a day for the family

The business is going well, but sometimes due to strike and the crisis in the country makes it difficult to repay my loan every month but somehow i have managed to do so.
