Greetings from Sierra Leone! Please meet 33-year-old Lamrana, from Calabatown. She is married and has one child, who is 10 years old and currently attending school. Lamrana has a provisions and drinks business, selling items such as milk, sugar, Ovaltine and mayonnaise. She started her business in 2008, in order to earn the money to send her child to school.
She plans to use the loan to buy more inventory for her store. She hopes to grow her business, so that she can be a wholesaler who sells large quantities. She thanks you for your support.
