Meet 29-year-old Haja from Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with three children. She began her business because she wants to take care of her family's welfare. In 2010, Haja established her retail business. She works at the business from 8 am to 12 pm, Monday to Friday. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation.
Haja requires a loan in order to purchase more items like stout and beer to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to expand her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, Haja plans to own the biggest shop in the community. She thanks you for your support.
