In 2007, Tenneh established her restaurant rice and stew, rice and cassava leaves, couscous, fried rice, and drinks business. She began her business because she wanted to help her husband and for the smooth running of the home. She opens her business 7 days a week and 12 hours a day. She earns about Le 700,000 from this business every month. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000.

She thanks you for your support.
