Mariatu
Meet 40-year-old Mariatu from Jui in the Eastern area in Freetown. She is single with 3 children. She began this business because she wants to educate her children. For the past 15 years, Mariatu has been running her clothing and cosmetic business. She works at the business 12 hours per day, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of capital to run her business.

Mariatu requires a loan in order to buy more clothing material and cosmetics to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, Mariatu plans to own a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
