Bonkie
Meet 38-year-old Bonkie from Waterloo2, a western rural area in Freetown. She is single with one three-year-old child. In 2007, Bonkie established her used clothing material business. She began her business because she wants to generate a permanent source of income to support her child. She works at the business from 8:00 am until 5:30 pm, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are insufficient capital to expand her business.

Bonkie requires a loan in order to purchase more used clothing for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business. In the future, Bonkie plans to expand her business to a higher level. She thanks you for your support.
