Maseray is 35 years old, married, and has two children, ages 7 and 12. Both of her children go to school.
She runs a store selling palm oil and gari in Moriba Town in Sierra Leone. She works at the business for 9 hours per day, 7 days per week. Maseray says that transportation to her store every day is difficult and is the main challenge facing her business.
Maseray has requested a loan in order to buy more palm oil and gari to grow her business. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve the life and education of her children. She is grateful for your support.
