Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40-year-old Hawa from Moriba town, Bo. She is married with 5 children. Her children are currently attending school.

Hawa runs a food stand. She sells rice, pepper and cooking seasoning. She has been running this business for 16 years. She works at the business throughout the week and 10 hours per day. Hawa says that sometimes business is very difficult.
