Meet 39-year-old Alice from Kandeh town Bo in Sierra Leone. She is married with five children, two of which are going to school.
In 2005, Alice established her palm oil business. She began her business because she needed to generate income to take care of herself and her family. She works at the business every day from morning to night. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and transportation.
Alice requires a loan to purchase palm oil, gari (a starchy vegetable), and general stock. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and repay her loan.
In the future, Alice plans to take her business to a higher level. She thanks you for your support.
