This is 40-year-old Hannah from Goderich, the western area in Freetown. She is married with two children aged 10 years and 18 years. Her two children are currently attending school.
Hannah runs a crated drinks and bundled water store in Goderich, where she sells Fanta, Vinto and Coca-Cola. She has been running this business for nine years. She also receives income from her husband who lives in England; he usually sends money to take care of their children. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of sufficient capital to invest in the business.
Hannah has requested a loan in order to buy more assorted drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her standard of living. In the future, she plans to extend her business to international levels. She appreciates your support.
