Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 36-year-old Fatu from Goderich western area in Freetown. She is married with four children between the ages of ten and twenty-one. Fatu's children attend school.
She runs an entertainment center at her Goderich, she sells food, drinks, alcohol, sardines, cigarettes and milk at her store. She has been running this business for eight years. She works at the business seven days per week. Her main source of income comes from her business. Fatu says that the main challenge to her business is that her capital to invest is not sufficient.
Fatu has requested a loan in order to buy more cooking items, drinks, alcohol, sardines and milk. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve their standard of living and take better care for her children's schooling. In the future, she plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support!
