Sarah
Meet 42-year-old Sarah from Tombo, a coastal town in the Western Area Rural District of Sierra Leone. She is married and has four children, who are between the ages of 1 and 16 years. Three of her children are currently attending school. In 2010, Sarah established her home products business. She began her business, because she wants to strive for herself and her family. She works at the business 10 hours per day, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is, sometimes people who owe her money don't pay.

Sarah requires a loan in order to buy knives, food containers, and plates to resell. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her standard of living. In the future, Sarah plans to begin importing her goods. She thanks you for your support.
