Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Fatmata from Torkpoi town in Bo. She is married with 2 children between the ages of 12 years and 18 years. Fatmata's children attend school. She began her business because she wants to stop sitting at home as a house wife and create a permanent source of income to take care of her needs.
Fatmata runs a general stock business. She sells clothes, suit cases and food containers. She has been running this business for the past 5 years. Fatmata works 8 hours per day and 7 days per week.
Fatmata has requested a loan to buy more clothes, suit cases and food containers. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her life and her family's well being. In the future, she plans to open a big general store. She thanks you for your support!
