loan is an expansion of her business. A Daughter of Charity remarks

**Update as of June 7, 2011:
Uche Muomah was given a loan of N 50,000 (330USD) and used it to
buy clothes from whole sellers and sell them in the local markets.
She repaid the full N 50,000 loan.

family. Their physical out look and mood of dressing is so
impressive and it has contributed to the fact that she has a means
of livelihood and not living to look up to relatives for charity.”
