Meet 46-year-old Yeabu from Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with 4 children. In 2003, Yeabu established her wood business. She began her business because she needs to earn income to support the home. She works at the business 12 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is the poor road network.
Yeabu requires a loan in order to buy more wood to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and have a vehicle to transport her goods. In the future, Yeabu plans to expand her business to become a big provision shop. She thanks you for your support.
