This is Abibatu S., a 45-year-old, married woman. She owns a plasticware business. She began her business because she wanted to help her mother, who was finding it very difficult to raise her younger children. She opens her business six days a week and 10 hours a day.
She would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 Sierra Leone leones. She requires a loan in order to have a savings account and to educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
