Fatu's story

Fatu A. is thirty-three years of age and married with four children. She started her business three years ago on a very small scale in Kabala town in Sierra Leone. Fatu changes her business activity according to the season. She sells clothes at certain seasons and engages in the buying and selling of agricultural products during harvest periods. Fatu also purchases food crops such as rice, dried beans, palm oil and honey, and stores them until they are scarce in the market, then she sells them at a higher price. She plans to build a shelter for her business at the market and is therefore requesting a loan of $200.
