Rokupa Stars Group's story

Mariatu, age 38, (pictured in the middle) is the leader of Rokupa, which is made up of three members.

All three members are engaged in petty trading to earn a living, but each of them sells different products.

Mariatu was chosen to be the leader of the group because of her wealth of experience in managing people.

Mariatu sell cosmetics as her business. Mariatu has been in this business for the past 17 years. She uses the proceeds from her business to help meet her family's household expenses.

She is a married woman with three children, ages 22, 17 and 12.

Mariatu and her group members requested a total loan of 6,000,000 SLL. Mariatu will use her share of 2,000,000 SLL to purchase additional cosmetics to sell.

She is hopeful that her business will thrive so that she can build enough savings to secure her family's future.

In particular, she wishes to continue to be able to support her children’s education.

Mariatu and her group members thank you for helping to finance their businesses.
