Please meet 48-year-old Jeneba from Torkpoi Town in Bo, Sierra Leone. She is married and has four children, two of whom are currently going to school.
Jeneba owns a business selling fish and oil. She works nine hours a day, five days a week at her business. She started her business to engage herself and educate her children. She requested the loan to buy more fish and oil.
She says that transportation is a big challenge. At times, the vehicle will break down on the way, and she will need to sleep by the road until the next day to find her way back. With the loan, she hopes to increase her business and pay her children’s school fees. She greatly appreciates your support!
