This is 34-year-old Memunatu from Torkpoi town Bo. She is married with 2 children between the ages of 1 and 7 years.
Menunatu runs a palm oil business in her area. She sells palm oil and gari (cassava flakes). She has been running this business for 9 years. She works at the business every day from morning to night. She says that the main challenges to her business are a poor road network within her operation area.
Memunatu has requested a loan in order to buy more gallons of palm oil and gari. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and improve her level of living. In the future, she plans to have a permanent residence for her family. She appreciates your support.
