Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 42-year-old Fatmata from Waterloo2. She is married with one child aged 21 years. She also has five additional dependents at home.
Fatmata runs a general stock business; she sells soap, milk, cigarettes, sugar and toothpaste. She has been running this business since 1991. She works at the business 12 hours per day and 7 days per week. Fatmata says that at present she is facing insufficient capital to run her business.
Fatmata has requested a loan in order to buy general stock like soap, milk, cigarettes, sugar and toothpaste. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and pay her installments. In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
