Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Fanta from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married with six children between the ages of six years and 15 years. Three of her children are attending school.
Fanta runs a food stand business; she sells onions, pepper, cooking oil, and rice. She has been running this business since 2006. She works at the business 10 hours per day and 7 days per week. Her hardship is slow purchasing power of customer.
Fanta has requested a loan in order to buy a variety of food stuff like onion, pepper, cooking oil, and rice. The extra income from this loan will allow her to change her business to a general store and take good care of her children. In the future, she plans to open a big general merchandise store. She thanks you for your support!
