Meet 33-year-old Sento from Jui, Sierra Leone. She is married with three children. For the past 13 years, Sento has had a local food market. She began her business because she wanted to empower herself. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., seven days per week. She is very hard-working and desires to improve her standard of living.
Sento requires a loan in order to purchase rice, sugar and milk to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to start a savings account and increase her business. In the future, Sento plans to further expand her business. She thanks you for your support.
