Meet 39-year-old Sarah from Jui, eastern area in Freetown. She is married with 3 children between the ages of 11 and 20 years. Her children are currently attending school. In 2008, Sarah established her general store business. She began her business because she wants to be independent. She works at the business 8 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that her main challenge is insufficient capital to operate her business.
Sarah requires a loan in order to buy more soft drinks and to prepare her tie-dyed items to sell. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her tie-dyes business. In the future, Sarah plans to open a big clothing business. She thanks you for your support.
