Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 47-year-old Satta from Torkpoi town Bo. She is married with 4 children. Despite her poor condition, she started this business to be recognized in the community.
Satta runs a food stand business; she sells pepper, palm oil, and cigarettes. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business 10 hours per days and 7 days per week. She says that her major problem is lack of enough finance to run her business.
Satta has requested a loan in order to buy more pepper, palm oil, and cigarettes for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to develop herself and able to take her daily meal. In the future, she plans to build a house. She thanks you for your support!
