Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 28-year-old Fatmata from Kissy, in the eastern area of Freetown, Sierra Lone. She is single with a six-year-old child who attends school. Fatmata also takes care of three relatives. For the past 10 years, she has run a store where she sells soft drinks, milk, sugar, biscuits, and cocoa. Fatmata works seven days a week and her business is her sole source of income. Her main business challenges are inflation and sales that are sometimes slow.
Fatmata is requesting a loan to buy provisions such as soft drinks, milk, sugar, cocoa, and biscuits. She will use the extra income from her loan to improve her business and increase her savings. In the future, she plans to become a bigger supplier. Fatmata thanks you for your support!
