Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40-year-old Fatmata from Lunsar Northern area. She is married with three children between the ages of 5 and 22 years. Two of her children attend school. She also has five additional dependents at home.
Fatmata runs a used clothing business; she sells female and male dress. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business 12 hours per day, 7 days per week. Fatmata says that the main challenge is that the rainy season sale is slow.
Fatmata has requested a loan in order to buy more clothing material for male and female. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her clothing material.
In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
