Marie's story

Meet 58-year-old Marie, who is from Magburaka, in Northern Province, Sierra Leone. She is married with 3 children. In 1985, Marie established her local food business. She began her business because she wanted to generate income. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., 6 days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient funds to expand. Marie requires a loan in order to purchase more palm oil, native rice, and beans for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her standard of living and expand her business. In the future, Marie plans to expand her business even more. She thanks you for your support.
