Micro lending, Macro Impact

After the war, the startup industry experienced a significant slowdown as entrepreneurs were called to reserves, investors paused investments. Anna took time off to look after the children and deal with the trauma. This  affected client acquisition and resulted in a loss of income. A loan is sought to revive the business by infusing funds into marketing efforts and rebuilding operations.
