Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 39-year-old Baby from Kandeh town in the Southern area in Bo. She is married with four children between the ages of six and twenty. Her children are currently attending school.
Baby runs a food stand business. She sells palm oil, rice, onions and gari. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business from 6:00am until 7:30 pm, 6 days per week. Her other source of income come from small-scale farming at the back of the yard. Baby say her business is doing well, customers always wait for her to set-up her business because her house is close to the market.
Baby has requested a loan in order to buy more food stuff including palm oil, rice, onions and gari. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her life. In the future, she would like her business to grow to become a shop. She thanks you for your support!
