Hawa
Meet 38-year-old Hawa from Waterloo2 in the eastern area of Freetown. She is married with 2 children, who are 10 and 18 years old. In 2008, Hawa established her slippers business. She began her business because she wants to generate her own source of income. She works at the business from 8:00 am until 7:00 pm, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.

Hawa requires a loan in order to purchase more slippers to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business.

In the future, Hawa plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support.
