Meet 29-year-old Fatmata from Kandeh town Bo in Sierra Leone. She is married with 1 child, age 4 years old. In 2007 Fatmata established her palm oil business. She began her business because she needs 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.

Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase clothes and slippers to exchange in the villages for palm oil. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and repay her loan. In the future, Fatmata plans to see her business to a higher level. She thanks you for your support.
