Fatumata lives in West Point with her friend and her son, who is 6 years old and attending school. She stopped her education in the 8th grade.
Fatumata has a table in the market where she sells cooking oil, vita, palm oil, salt, and onion. She has done this for the past four years. Because she sells what her customers need, she makes a profit. She uses the profit to improve her business and pay the educational expenses of her son. She is requesting a loan to purchase more cooking oil, vita, palm oil, salt, and onion for her business.
