Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 50-year-old Dorah from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married with six children between the ages of 18 years and 35 years old. One of her children attends school. She started business to earn a daily income for her family.
Dorah runs a cookery business; she sells cooked food at her house. She has been running this business since 2004. She works at the business from 5:00 am to 4:00 pm, every day. Dorah says that the main challenge to her business is the problem of price control in the market.
Dorah has requested a loan in order to buy foods like cooking seasonings, oil and rice. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve the life of her children. In the future, she plans to have a big restaurant. She thanks you for your support!
