This is 36-year-old Adama from Krootown Central area in Freetown. She is married with 2 children. 3 and 18. Her elder child is currently attending school.
Adama runs a provision shop at Congo town, selling tea, butter, mayonnaise, luncheon meat, sardines, milk, sugar and drinks. She has been running this business for 15 years. She works at the business 7 days per week. She also has another provision table in front of the Congo town market as another source of income. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of enough capital to invest in the business.
Adama has requested a loan in order to increase her inventory. The extra income from this loan will allow her to take care of her children's education. In the future, she plans to have more provision stores in the community. She appreciates your support.
