Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 48-year-old Margaret from Moriba Town in the southern part of Bo. She is married and has two children, and she has four additional dependents at home. Margaret runs a palm oil business; she sells gallon containers of palm oil. She has been running this business for 10 years ago. She works at the business seven days a week, 10 hours per day. She says that her business is going well. Margaret has applied for a loan in order to buy more gallon containers of palm oil. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business. In the future, she plans to open a palm oil store. She thanks you for your support!
