Fatmata, 34, is from Port Loko. She is married and has two children between the ages of 10 and 15. Her children attend school.
Fatmata runs a general store at her house. She sells palm oil, rice, milk, cigarettes, and cooking oil. She has been running this business since 1992. She works at her business throughout the week, from morning to night. Currently, her business is doing well.
Fatmata is requesting a loan in order to buy more food commodities such as palm oil, rice, milk, cigarettes, and cooking oil for her store. The extra income she will earn as a result of this loan will allow her to improve her business and provide for her family. In the future, she plans to educate her children at the university-level.
