Please meet 43-year-old Hasanatu from Sierra Leone. She is married with four children, the youngest being four years old. She also cares for two other relatives.
Hasanatu sells palm oil and works at her business eight hours a day for six days per week. She started her business because she wanted to contribute financially to her family. She was formerly a housewife. She wants to use the loan to purchase more palm oil to expand her business.
She hopes that the extra income generated from the loan will improve the standard of education of her children. She thanks you for your support.
