Meet 35-year-old Jariatu from Waterloo Western rural area in Freetown. She is married with three children. Her children are currently attending school. For the past 10 years, Jariatu has established her clothing material business. She began her business because she needed to create income to support the home. She works at the business 12 hours per day and seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of enough capital to run her business.

Jariatu requires a loan in order to buy more clothing material and shoes to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, Jariatu plans to own a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
