This is 27-year-old Tenneh from Torkpoi town Bo. She is single mother with 3 children between the ages of 3 and 9 years. Two of her children are going to school. She started her business because she did not go to school, so her mother trained her for the business.
Tenneh runs a dry fish business, where she sells dry fish within a busy market area. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business every day from morning to night. She says that the main challenges to her business are insufficient capital to run her business and price inflation.
Tenneh has requested a loan in order to buy more dry fish for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve herself and educate her children.
In the future, she plans to expand her business to a big fish table. She appreciates your support.
