Meet 35-year-old Nenneh from Moriba Town in Sierra Leone. She is married and has two children, ages 2 and 13. One of her children currently attends school, and her husband is a teacher. She sells gari (processed cassava flour) and works every day at her business. She first started the business to improve herself and to take care of her children. The business is going well, and she is applying for a loan of SLL 1,000,000 to buy more inventory to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from the loan will help give her the ability to take better care of her children and to take her business to another level. She thanks you for your support.
