Meet Finda. She is a 40-year-old from Jui, eastern area, in Freetown. She is married with three children.
In 2003, Finda established her general stock business. She began her business because she wants to sustain her family. She works at the business nine hours per day and six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.
Finda requires a loan in order to purchase more toothpaste, cream, soap and perfume to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to pay her children’s school fees and increase her business.
In the future, Finda plans to open a foodstuff table. She thanks you for your support.
