Meet 28-year-old Fudia from Krootown in the central area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. At the moment, she is single and has no children.
In 2007, Fudia established her business, selling used items. She is very hard working and works at the business six days per week. She began her business when she was a student and found it to be very profitable. She says that the main challenge she faces is insufficient capital to invest in the business.
Fudia requires a loan in order to more buy more rugs, carpets, mats and drinks. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her standard of living. In the future, Fudia plans to expand her business and become a wholesaler. She thanks you for your support.
