Meet 47-year-old Fatu, from Tombo Western rural area in Freetown. She is married with 3 children between the ages of 3 years and 12 years. Two of her children are currently attending school.
In 2010, Fatu established her cake business. She began her business because she needs to create income to support the home. Fatu works at her business 10 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge is lack of enough capital to run her business.
Fatu requires a loan in order to buy flour, sugar and oil to prepare more products for her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and take care of her family welfare. In the future; Fatu plans to own a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
