Meet 45-year-old Salamatu from Torkpoi Town, Bo, in Sierra Leone. She is married and has four children between the ages of 15 and 25. Two are currently attending school. In 2003, Salamatu established her retail business. She began her business because she wanted to create a permanent source of income to support her family. She works at the business every day from morning to night. She says her business is doing fine. Salamatu needs a loan in order to buy more food provisions, such as oranges. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her standard of living. In the future, Salamatu plans to expand her business. She thanks you for your support.
