Meet 40-year-old Memunatu from the Lunsar Northern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with four children between the ages of nine and 20. Three of her children are currently attending school. Memunatu established her general store in 2009 to create income to improve her standard of living. She works seven days a week, 15 hours a day. Memunatu's major business challenge is transportation.
Memunatu is requesting a loan to buy more soap, milk, toothpaste, and sardines. She hopes that the extra income from her loan will allow her to take good care of her family. In the future, Memunatu plans to build a permanent residence for her family. She thanks you for your support.
