Meet 36-year-old Fatmata from Fullah town in Central area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married with 3 children between the ages of 12 years and 18 years. Fatmata's children are currently attending school.

In 2006, Fatmata established her boutique business. Her other source of income comes from small-scale animal rearing. She began her business because she needed a permanent source of income to support her family. She works at the business 7 days per week and 8 hours a day. She says that the main challenges to her business are price variation and slow sales.

Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more female dresses, shoes, shirts and bags. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her family's standard of living. In the future, Fatmata plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support.
