Please meet 40 year old Therese from Jui, Sierra Leone. She is married with three children, the youngest of whom is 12 years old. All three of her children currently go to school. Therese owns a general merchandise business where she sells provisions and other dry foodstuffs. She started her store 10 years ago to help develop the family. She works at the store 30 days out of 31 days in a month. She wants to use the loan to buy more inventory such as dry foodstuffs for her store. She hopes to one day have a very big shop. She greatly appreciates your support!
