Meet Abie, who is 34 years old and from Torkpoi town in the Bo Southern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with two children who are 14 and 18 years old. Abie's children are currently attending school. In 2004, she established a food market to raise income to support her household. She works eight hours per day and six days each week. Abie says that her business is doing well.
Abie is requesting a loan to buy food containers and palm oil. She hopes that the extra income from her loan will allow her to increase her business and help pay her children's school fees. In the future, Abie plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
