Meet 45-year-old Binta from Tombo (Western Area Rural District) near Freetown. She is married with two children. After her wedding, Binta established her cookery business. She began her business because she needs to create income to support the home. She works at her business ten hours per day and seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business lack of enough capital to run her business.

Binta requires a loan in order to buy more rice, onions, and cooking seasonings for her business. She hopes that the extra income resulting from this loan will allow her to increase her business and repay her loan. In the future, Binta plans to own a full restaurant. She thanks you for your support.
