Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 48-year-old Yeabu from the eastern area of Waterloo in Freetown. She is married with three children. She did not going to school, so she decided to do run a restaurant so she can take care of her family,
Along with the restaurant, she sells palm oil and coconut oil. She has been running this business for 15 years and she works at the business 7 days per week, 12 hours per day. Yeabu says that her business is doing well; she has taken a loan for a third time, and out of the profit she is able to take care of her children.
Yeabu has requested a loan to purchase bags of rice, gallons of palm oil, pure water, and soft drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her standard of living and start her building project.
In the future, she plans to open a big restaurant. She thanks you for your support!
