Please meet 43-year-old Tity from Kandeh Town, Bo. Bo is located in the southern region of Sierra Leone. She is married with seven children, with the youngest one being 10 years old. Currently, four of her children go to school. Her husband is a traditional healer.
Tity has a business selling general stock items such as sweets, biscuits, milk, sugar and juice. She started her business in order to help her husband take care of the family. She was a housewife before. She will use the loan proceeds to purchase more general stock items such as sweets, biscuits, milk, sugar and juice to help her business grow. One of the main challenges she faces is the great competition in the area where she sells her stock. The extra income from the loan will help her pay for her children’s school fees. She thanks you for your support.
