Greetings from Jui, Sierra Leone! This is 37 year old Susan. She is married with three children, the youngest being 13 years old. Susan runs a general store selling food provisions and other miscellaneous products. She started the business 12 years ago in order to help the family. She works at her business tirelessly, taking only one day off per month. She says that her business fluctuates often. She is requesting this loan to purchase more products, provisions and foodstuffs for her general store in order to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from her business will improve the life of her family. She thanks you for your support.
