Memuna is 25 years-old and married with two children, She runs a fish business in Moriba town in Sierra Leone. She is a hardworking woman who desires to educate her children. Her mother was a fish seller and she was trained to fish trade so she decided to go to fish selling as her own profession.
She's been in this business for seven years and she sells dry fish within a busy market area. She says that her business is doing well because when she goes to the market she has more sales.
Memuna requested this loan through Kiva partner BRAC Sierra Leone in order to purchase more fish to resell. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and buy a generator for her comfort. In the future, she would like to export her fish business to neighboring countries. She is grateful for your support.
