Meet Watta from Kulanda Town in Bo, Sierra Leone. She is 36 years old with three children and they all go to school. Watta runs a clothing store selling blouses, skirts and shirts. She works at her business 15 hours a day, 6 days a week.
Watta requested the loan to purchase more clothing for her store to sell during the dry season. She says that her challenge is that during the rainy season, business is slow. The loan will help her expand her business and educate her children. In five years, she wants to grow her business into a large store that sells all sorts of different items, not just clothes. She greatly appreciates your support!
