My name is Julienne Razanamalala and I am 31 years old. I am a single mother, and I have two children, one son and one daughter. I run a little grocery store.
I get up at 5:00 a.m. each morning and get my business ready (I sweep the floor of my shop and I arrange the things I sell).
Every day I spend 40,000 ariary ($18) for my business and I receive a profit of 10,000 ariary ($4.50). My neighbors are the customers. My business does well every weekend and at the end of the month, but between the 10th and the 20th of the month, I need to loan food items to my customers.
Because I do not have a high school diploma, it is very difficult for me to find a better job. That is why I do this business and thanks to your aid (the loan from Masomboly), I am able to support my basic needs.
What I would like to change in my life is to completely leave this life of poverty and live a quiet, better life (with a big, beautiful house made of concrete, and a car).
Every day, even the weekends except on the day we have the meeting with Ms. Agathe and Ms. Filonne, I stay in my shop. I do not have the time to go out or have fun. It is only my two children who go to church on Sunday.
A proverb that I like very much is “Those who visit others will be loved by their neighbors.
Another proverb that I like is “It is better to lose money than to lose a friendship.”
I would ask you to increase the amount of money you lend me in order that my problems can go away and I thank you very much for your financial help. I hope that they continue and never stop.
Merci et au revoir.
