Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 45-year-old Zainab from Moriba town Bo. She is married with three children between the ages of 18 and 23 years. Her children are currently attending school. Zainab runs a general stock business; she sells plastic bowls, buckets, knives and dishes. She has been running this business for the past year. She works at the business for ten hours per day, seven days each week. Her business is her only source of income. She describes her main problem as the cost of storage in the market.
Zainaba has requested a loan in order to purchase more stock. The extra income from this loan will allow her to give her children a quality education. In the future, she plans to expand her business further. She thanks you for your support!
